To broaden its support of faculty, ET Partners piloted a few special "partnerships" with departments during Spring 2004. In addition to the individual faculty partnerships the program routinely offers, pairs of students assisted faculty throughout three departments with their educational technology needs. This approach more than doubled the number of faculty who were able to meet one-to-one with a student technology advisor over the course of a single quarter.
One such partnership assisted the Department of Textiles and Clothing in creating a digital repository of their vast collection of analog teaching materials. This project now offers faculty quick access to the entire collection, and the ability to quickly create or revise digital lecture presentations using the Almagest online teaching and learning tool.
