The SWC Technology Plan 2011-2015 is a guide to the allocation and use of technology resources in support of student learning and institutional effectiveness at Southwestern College. The purpose of the plan is to further the mission, vision, and strategic direction of the college. It will be reviewed on an annual basis as it is integrated with Institutional Planning and Program Review.
This plan was developed by the Technology Task Team (TTT) during spring 2011. It includes the following sections: SWC Mission, Planning Process, Contributors, Vision, Definition, Guiding Values and Principles, Technology Services Summary, Technology Goals and Strategies, Implementation Grid and Action Items, Appendices.
The Implementation Grid shows the action items, lead manager, responsible units, timelines, performance indicators, dependencies, and required resources that are necessary to further the goals and strategies of the Technology Master Plan. Over the summer (2011), the Technology Plan Oversight Team (TPOT) revised the Implementation Grid and prioritized the Action Items that were scheduled to begin 2011-2012. The Prioritized Action Items were reviewed/revised/approved by the Institutional Technology Committee (ITC) in August 2011.
The Prioritized Action Items of the Implementation Grid are published along with a status report of activities for each item. The activity for each Action Item is updated on an ongoing basis to show the progress towards furthering the goals and strategies of the Technology Master Plan.
