U of T Information Technology Services (ITS) Review

The Committee received considerable feedback on diverse issues and concerns regarding ITS. The institution faces many issues, from review of the number of email services provided to decisions about upgrade paths for major systems like AMS. The University must also ensure that it has robust processes in place to meet requirements with respect to privacy, security and business continuity. It was not the Committee’s role to solve these or the many other issues related to ITS that we face – although members of the Committee and community clearly have views on these matters. Rather, our role was to recommend management and organizational structures that would allow for these types of issues to be fully assessed using principles such as those outlined above, for recommendations to be formulated based on those assessments, and for clear pathways for decision-making regarding those recommendations and implementation of the selected actions.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ENABLED SERVICES IN PROMOTING SERVICES MARKETING

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ENABLED SERVICES IN PROMOTING SERVICES MARKETING

The service sector has emerged as the fastest sector of the economy throughout the developed world. His growth has been accompanied by a corresponding decrease in the importance within the balance of trade of primary industries such as agriculture and fishing and secondary industries such as manufacturing. The growth of service Industries and the service economy has stimulated interest in services marketing theory and practice. A further development is the international- ization of services. Changes in lifestyle has led to increased demand for leisure services and foreign travel, for example, while developments in technology have led to increased demand for hi-tech services such as computing. New Technologies have also revolutionized service provision processes through the use of automation and computerized systems. There is every sign that service economy will continue to grow in size and the importance and this will be reflected in future developments in services marketing. In striving to gain and maintain competitive advantage, both productivity and quality are the key importance. However, the nature of services implies that it is difficult to avoid a trade-off situation, when improvements in service productivity can lead to sacrifices in the level of quality. This is the most sensitive in services marketing where people are the service deliverers. If a bank cashier or travel agent needs to process globally, the Indian software services and ITES-SM industries have introduced a novel management system and work culture into the Indian Work place. I.T.E.S. industry should make strategic decisions to proactively fulfill those needs that will become the dominant players in their respective markets.

However, if the construction, alteration or repair is segregable and exceeds $2,000, then the requirements of the Davis-Bacon Act applies.

Pedagogic approaches to using technology for learning: literature review

Pedagogic approaches to using technology for learning: literature review

“While most teacher training programs and concepts have focussed on the technological side of media, the pedagogical scenarios for teaching and LEARNING have been almost completely neglected. Teachers certainly need to be trained in the use of technology but this has to be done without teaching them the technological skills but showing them great ways to engage their students in learning by using technology. I can tell you from my own experience that these official techie trainings are not good for anything! If we do not guide teachers showing them how to develop scenarios for their classrooms and giving them best practice examples we will never win them. When I do teacher training on LMS with a colleague, the USP for our workshop always turns out to be the easiness using web 2.0 content and embedding it in the courseroom with just 2 clicks. Take for example the “wallwisher” to collect opinions and statements, you will get your course move instantly…. take voicethread where you can engage students and teachers on any subject you can imagine…
