The Digital Strategy Task Force report recommended that CU Denver complete a classroom audit that could inform a roadmap for technology upgrades in order to ensure appropriate classroom technology for teaching across modalities. In gathering some initial data, we seek to verify the status of the CU Denver owned classrooms and assess whether they are meeting today’s current teaching and learning standards as well as meeting today’s technology best practices for flexible teaching and learning capabilities in the classroom.
Initial data collection guiding questions:
Based on the collection of feedback about cross-disciplinary classroom needs, we will create a phased timeline and resourcing plan to upgrade the classrooms.
In this campus presentation on Tuesday, November 1, Corey Parham and Katie Linder presented preliminary findings from data collected over the summer regarding 96 CU Denver classrooms and discussed some possible next steps for the classroom technology audit project. For those not able to attend, a recording of the session can be found below.
In these feedback sessions, we will be collecting information from various campus groups to further refine baseline and advanced models for classroom equipment upgrades that serve both modality and disciplinary needs. Feedback topics will include defining what, if any, standard equipment should be included in all classrooms across the campus. We will also explore teaching and learning needs related to digital connections for various devices, image projection needs, and equipment needed for teaching in flexible hybrid modalities, among other topics.
