ET Partners Program Benefits Growing Number of Faculty, Students

This quarter marked the conclusion of the first year of the ET Partners program. Since inception, the ET Partners program has enabled 30 faculty, representing 26 different departments and 42 courses, to incorporate educational technology into their teaching. The faculty and student partners worked to develop course Web sites, make use of the campus? evolving portal technology (MyUCDavis), provide online access to faculty and course materials, and convert traditional lecture presentations into digital format. The resulting efforts of the partnerships have assisted faculty participants to influence the learning experience of nearly 5,000 students over the course of one year. This number is expected to increase by more than 1,000 students during Winter Quarter 2003. \tFor more information on this program, see http://mediaworks.ucdavis.edu/, click on Educational Technology, and then select ET Partners.
