The Information and Instructional Technology Committee (Tech Committee) researches, prioritizes and recommends technology-centered outcomes that directly or indirectly impact equitable student success and the core values of DVC.
To accomplish this, the Tech Committee uses a data and research-based decision-making process to provide clear communications and recommendations on technology to faculty, staff, and governance bodies. Tech Committee's work encompasses the study and promotion of instructional and information technologies relevant to student services, institutional effectiveness, enrollment research, equitable access, and effective pedagogical practices in the classroom. The Tech Committee collaborates with the Information Technology and Services (IT&S) department to develop and implement campus policies, procedures and processes; creates annual action plans; and creates subcommittee task forces to focus on specific tasks or issues.
