The Center works closely with a broad range of partners within and beyond LaGuardia, including the LaGuardia Senate Committee on Professional Development, to ensure the high quality facilities, resources, consultation, and assistance, that are critical to the success of our programs: We work closely with the Division of Information Technology to coordinate and optimize access to computer labs and network resources. The Center partners with the CIS Department's New Media Technology program to assist with the program's needs to train Math and English faculty to support new media. The funding for this faculty development was provided in part by the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technology Education directive for undergraduate education, grant #0101707. We collaborate with the Library, in delivering workshops on online research and copyright, producing video documentation, and developing policy guidelines; we design public events and workshops in partnership with LaGuardia's Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR), which is part of a national network committed to developing a broad understanding of possibilities and challenges associated with new educational technologies; and we exchange resources and expertise with the Division of Adult and Continuing Education (ACE), which serves over 25,000 students each year with a variety of programs and services.
