Technology iPad Pilot
iPad Pilot Project
IT Services, with support from the Technology Advisory and Teaching and Learning Committees, will run an iPad program for the fall 2013 and spring 2014 semesters. We’re looking to support courses in which students use iPads in and out of class. The goal of the program will be to assess the value and effectiveness of iPads in the classroom, and for student use. For the courses selected to participate, we will provide an iPad (3rd generation) for the instructor and each student in the course to keep for the entire semester.
Faculty and students who participate in the program will be expected to participate in a range of assessment activities, some of which faculty will self-identify in their proposal, and others that will involve all program participants.
Number of Courses and Students Involved
We anticipate supporting three or four courses each semester, utilizing 65 iPads total. We’ve not set a maximum course enrollment for the pilot program, but given these limits, it is unlikely that we could support a course with an enrollment much above 20 students.

Proposal Review and Selection
Proposals will be reviewed by IT Services, the Technology Advisory Committee, and the Dean and Division Chairs. We will notify the faculty of which proposals have been selected by end of May.
