ITPG Meeting Minutes December 15, 2005


The ITPG has spent the last couple of meetings looking at itself and its subcommittees and suggesting possible ways for committees to be more effective. We discussed that each committee and subcommittee needed to determine for itself how to become more effective. The "Rules of Engagement" are possible options but not mandatory. The important point is that each committee needs to be effective in dealing with their area of focus. If the membership feels that a committee has lost its effectiveness, they should bring that issue to the ITPG and the ITPG will prescribe solutions.

The ITPG then discussed what topics each of the subcommittees should focus on for the rest of the academic year.
