  • Orientation:   -Speakers talk about the importance of networking -Free t-shirt, ha ha.   Cirriculum: It is spelled out and straightforward
  • registration:  often not enough sections of popular and/or required classes, especially during summer.   the online registration interface could be easier to navigate; looking up classes can be cumbersome.     curriculum:  satellite classes are mentioned as a draw for the program, yet few are actually offered.   faculty:  the same class (704) can yield widely varying experiences, depending on the professor.-example--mapping out pathways
  • Alumni: do we have connections with alumni?  there are a lot of them out there--people keep talking about Dominican grads when they go on library visits       cd:  if only presented during orientation, the emphasis can be lost due to the large quantity of information being absorbed at that time...
  • admissions:  economy can impact potential students   students may choose a competing program for economic or other reasons (different specialization, reputation, etc)     Registration:  a high or low number of students can impact the number of classes offered   large number of students wanting/needing certain classes to move on; course canceled for lack of students     faculty:  personal issues may impact a professor&apos;s ability to teach effectively   other responsibilities (other teaching/library jobs) may get in the way.     resources:  economy can impact students&apos; access to technology. 
  • Tech competencies that build upon each other as technology develops and is integrated by faculty in the majority of classes.   6. Encourage faculty of other departments to share their expertise, in order to create a more well-rounded informed student.  Prepare them for the real world.
  • online poll:   The timing would allow for more serious reflection instead of asking questions when students are burned out on the last day of class. annual review of tech is necessary because it changes so quickly
