The Technology Across the Curriculum (TAC) program at George Mason can add two national awards to the international- and state-level awards it currently owns. Educause, an association that addresses the complex issues that attend the incorporation of information technologies and resources into the higher education mission and functions, will present George Mason two prestigious awards at its national conference in Indianapolis on Oct. 30.

The 2001 Educause Award for Systematic Progress in Teaching and Learning recognizes campuswide programs and practices that use information technologies to support learner-centered teaching and learning in ways that are transformative, sustainable and replicable. The TAC program, a collaborative effort between the College of Arts and Sciences and Division of Instructional Technology Support Services (DoIT), is designed to incorporate appropriate technologies into all classes and ensure that every student graduates from Mason with technological skills and understanding of how they can be used.

The second award is for an article on the TAC program published in Educause Quarterly, Volume 23, Number 4, 2000. “Technology Across the Curriculum at George Mason University” was coauthored by Anne Agee, executive director of DoIT and Dee Ann Holisky, associate dean of academic programs in CAS.
