Introduction to the Roundtable

The Teaching, Learning and Technology Roundtable, under the umbrella of the Learning, Teaching and Innovative Technologies Center (LT&ITC) is part of a national network of faculty groups at colleges and universities interested in improving education through the integration of instructional technology. There are over 400 Roundtables across the country. The concept of teaching, learning and technology roundtables was started by the national TLT group, of which MTSU has been a member since its inception in 1995. Early accomplishments of the MTSU TLTR included:

  • preparing a team planning document
  • organizing six faculty instructional technology institutes
  • supporting the Mid-South Instructional Technology Conferences
  • supporting several K-12 Technology Conferences
  • successfully seeking MTSU Foundation sponsorship for the faculty award for Outstanding Achievement in Instructional Technology
  • establishing the faculty Award for Innovative Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Technology and serving as the selection committee for the award
  • establishing the internship in the Office of Information Technology and serving as the internship selection committee
  • working toward greater recognition of faculty instructional technology efforts in the promotion and tenure process

In 2006, roundtable members recognized that many of its original charges of encouraging and supporting faculty integration of instructional technology, were now being accomplished by the newly formed Learning, Teaching and Innovative Technologies Center (LT&ITC). The members agreed to dissolve the TLTR as a separate entity and continue its work under the auspices of the LT&ITC.
