Faculty Support Team
Faculty are awarded release time to work with the CITL. Their roles vary, but overall, faculty are assisting other faculty by running workshops, providing one-on-one support or heading up special projects. The faculty support team is essential to the existence and the reach of CITL.
The role of the CITL Advisory Committee is to advise the Dean of Program Development, Learning Technologies, and Process Improvement on the goals, direction, and desired outcomes of the use of instructional technology and best practices in pedagogy at Bergen Community College (BCC). The advisory committee recommends policies, procedures, and resource allocations for the effective and efficient deployment of instructional technology at BCC as well as the content and direction of seminars on best practices in pedagogy. It also helps ensure the appropriate delineation of support unit roles in providing seamless and integrated instructional technology services.
