Faculty members who themselves require an introduction to the use of ITS-supported computer facilities, systems, and software may request a classroom presentation under the following conditions:
- A presentation on the same material may be requested a maximum of two times. The faculty member who requested it must be present for the classroom presentation. The courses are free of charge.
- A minimum of ten students per class is required. If a faculty member anticipates that fewer than ten students will attend, ITS requests that another class be required to attend the same session.
- Faculty members are asked to ensure that their students have prerequisite knowledge if the presentation is not at the introductory level. If the class does not have the required expertise, the faculty member must schedule the prerequisite presentation first.
- If a hands-on approch is used in the presentation, an ITS teaching facility will be used.
- Sufficient class periods should be allowed to adequately cover course material.
- Once a request is made to Information Technology Services at ITCOURSE@etal.uri.edu, a presentation will be scheduled at a time slot based on the regular class schedule, the availability of ITS teaching staff, and the availability of the teaching facility.
ITS Policy for Staff Teaching a Class or Workshop:
Any ITS staff member who would like to offer a technology-related class or workshop to the campus community may do so. If it is an ITS-coordinated Short Course, workshop, or classroom presentation, the ITS Short Course coordinator will advertise the course, secure a computer lab and required software, and register students. Otherwise, it will be the staff member’s responsibility to advertise the course, secure a computer lab and required software, and register students.
