Mini-Symposia for STEM Education: collaboration between Integrating STEM Education (iSTEM) and the Faculty Teaching Excellence Program (FTEP)
Integrating STEM Education (iSTEM) and the Faculty Teaching Excellence Program (FTEP) will offer up to 4 mini-symposia during 2010 to bring together audiences in four areas: teacher professional development, graduate education, undergraduate research, and outreach/community engagement. The goal to bring people from policy, practice, and research communities in each area together to learn about each other’s work, make connections and build community, and hopefully collaborate or coordinate on future projects and proposals. Each mini-symposia will be a platform to bring people together, but it will be up to the participants as to how they choose to move forward. The Annual iSTEM Symposium in August will feature outcomes from the mini-symposia.
All mini-symposia will be co-sponsored by iSTEM and FTEP.

Anderson Language Technology Center (ALTEC)
ALTEC provides a variety of services to students of foreign languages at the University of Colorado-Boulder. At ALTEC, students can view foreign language films, listen to language practice tapes, download and record digital audio files, and much more. ALTEC facilities include computers which enable students to do word processing in foreign languages, multi-media classrooms with state of the art equipment, and a library of films from around the world. ALTEC sponsors the Foreign Language Technology Program (FLTP), a series of non-credit workshops for graduate students and faculty on incorporating technology into foreign language teaching. In addition, ALTEC also administrates Foreign Language Classes for Faculty and Staff. They are located on the first floor of Hellems, just south of Norlin Quad.
Arts and Sciences Support of Education Through Technology (ASSETT)
ASSETT advances the teaching mission of the College of A&S by supporting uses of educational and information technology. ASSETT provides training resources to faculty and students, assists A&S units with tech-related needs, shares information, and partners with others on campus to better integrate services throughout the College.
Center for Asian Studies (CAS)
The Center for Asian Studies (CAS) is an interdisciplinary organization located on the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado that brings together faculty, students, and community members to encourage and support Asian scholarship across disciplinary and college boundaries.
CAS organizes events, supports research and teaching, and acts as a key resource for students and scholars with an interest in Asian Studies. The Center’s area of focus encompasses all of Asia, from China and Japan to the countries of the Middle East.
Academic Technology Consulting (Office of Information Technology)
Academic Technology Consultants (ATCs) assist faculty with integrating technologies into their teaching, research, and creative works. Each consultant has a primary affiliation with a school or college. Their services include one-on-one consulting, small group instruction, and assistance with the development and implementation of academic projects involving technology.
ATCs offer the benefit of being fully integrated into the Office of Information Technology (OIT) as well as being part of a particular academic community. As such they appreciate the discipline-specific needs of the faculty they serve. They customize each consultation to help faculty apply effective and creative technology-enabled practices that enhance the learning experience of students.
