Greetings. I'm trying to build the case to my Dean and the appropriate tenure review committee's that there needs to be a recognized reward structure for faculty to encourage them to use educational technology in a meaningful way in their teaching. "Recognized structure" implies granting faculty release time to develop materials (or learn new technologies and methodologies), having tenure and promotion committees treat multimedia "publications" with similar weight as traditional paper publications, and rewarding faculty technology innovations with some sort of "in-house" recognition. I see this as the major hurdle for those of us who are responsible for helping faculty integrate technology into their teaching. I realize this is not news to anyone on this list. I'm beginning a literature review on this and would like to know if anyone could send me information about what types of "reward structures" are in place in your institutions; how difficult were they to put in place; and are they working. I will summarize and post the result of the responses on the list. Thanks for your help and have a happy holiday season. --Jon ___________________________________________ Jonathan Enos, Ed.D.
