The Mobile Teaching and Learning Charter is a planning document that
makes policy recommendations. It is a joint recommendation from the
Instructional Technology Policy Advisory Committee (ITPAC) and the Provost's Council.
What is mobile teaching and learning?
Mobile teaching and learning is the versatile use of computing devices at
some distance from the normal, fixed classroom or workplace to interact in
some fashion with a central information system. As a result, students or
faculty can create, access, process, store, and communicate information
without being constrained to a single location. The key driver behind mobile
teaching and learning is the need to deliver knowledge to any place, any
time for the purpose of enhancing learning opportunities, improving
productivity, and providing a competitive edge in the classroom and in
Fort Hays State University (FHSU) is positioned to respond to the
increasing use of mobile devices by its students and the need to
move to the next level of our "high tech/high touch" teaching
and learning environment. The University has taken the following
steps: (1) created a campus-wide wireless infrastructure; (2) purchased
tablet and laptop computers for faculty and selected staff; (3)
developed education technology training opportunities for faculty
in the Center for Teaching Excellence and Learning Technologies (CTELT);
and (4) built a new technical support structure for faculty and
students in Forsyth Library and the Computing and Telecommunication
