Carl Sandburg College continues to innovate in terms of using technology in the administration of the college, as well as in the classroom.Sandburg announced yesterday through a press release that it received first place honors for the small school division in the ninth annual Digital Community Colleges Survey — done through the e.Republic Center for Digital Education.
It’s the third year Sandburg has won in the division for schools with enrollment of less than 5000 students, and the second in a row.
The college says the survey looks at advances made by community colleges in using information technology, and which, quote, “provide a high level of service to their faculty, students, and communities as a result.”
Questions in the survey, Sandburg says, deal with emerging technologies, tech tools for faculty and students, and the college’s technology infrastructure, among other things.
The college was also cited, it says, for how it’s gone from a three-day tech training workshop for faculty and staff, to weekly sessions done throughout the year.
Although the finalizing votes on district wide budget cuts didn’t take place last night as was originally planned there were two major discussion items that revolved around those cuts.
