8. new ideas for goals for 2019-2020.

  • Pursue the idea of virtual machines across campus, and consider how to address virtualization with administrators at QCC and CUNY

9. assessment of effectiveness of committee.

  • As a liaison between busy faculty and administrative persons operating with austerity conditions, it is difficult to shape the computer resources available, their operation for the benefit of faculty, CLTs, etc., or to even imagine how the committee could advise the Senate to change the utilization of computer resources. This leaves the committee with two limited roles: 
    • to organize meetings for CLT's to work out solutions to common issues and address issues that pertain to faculty
    • to act as an advertisement for the technology options available to faculty through the annual newsletter 
  • It is difficult to assess the effectiveness of these measures

10. acknowledgments of outstanding accomplishments of any members.

  • Leslie Ward, Adrian Bordoni, Andrew Bulawa, and Tim Keogh all deserve credit for researching, interviewing, and writing useful articles for the annual newsletter
