The Learning Technology Working Group (LTWG) provides the vision, priorities, and pace for enterprise learning technology solutions and services to be undertaken on campus. Its work focuses on endorsing the adoption of new learning technology solutions, as well making recommendations when we need to upgrade or decommission some of our existing services. Deans nominate committee members. The committee usually meets three to four times a semester for one hour.
