Introducing the Campus Leaders Advisory Board
We’re happy to announce that the Campus Leaders Advisory Board (C-LAB, “see-lab”) is being reinvigorated here at Penn. The C-LAB is a campus group promoted by the New Media Consortium (NMC), which is “an international community of experts in educational technology” (http://www.nmc.org/about/) that Penn belongs to as an organization, and several people here belong to as individuals.
So what is the C-LAB?
The Campus Leaders Advisory Board is a group of people from across campus who have various roles in technology planning and support. C-LABs exist at most of the colleges, universities and other institutions that belong to NMC. We participate in a variety of NMC events including conferences and webinars where we share what’s going on at Penn and learn from others about what they’re doing. By participating in a national organization like NMC, we stay on top of what’s new and exciting in educational technology, with input from others around the country and around the world. One of the goals of Penn’s C-LAB is to translate what we learn into ideas that fit our own context, and to share those ideas with people in various roles all over campus.
On our campus, Mark Aseltine of ISC is the NMC Campus Liaison, and the other C-LAB members are Chris Alexy (Nursing), David Brubaker (SEAS), Nate Cosgrove (Design), Liz Evans (ISC), John MacDermott (SAS), Marilyn Puchalski (ISC/MAGPI), Elizabeth Scheyder (SAS) and Anu Vedantham (Penn Libraries). As we increase the activity of the C-LAB here at Penn, various members of the group will be sharing information and promoting ideas and activities. We’ll be using this blog to share ideas, so please bookmark this page (or subscribe to the RSS feed) to see what’s new!
