About the Technology Learning Center
The TLC is the office that organizes the Technology Professional Development Training Program. Training is delivered in a variety of modes to meet the needs of CCSF faculty and staff. From hands-on workshops, to online training, to sessions created specifically for your department's needs, the TLC wants you to feel comfortable using the tools we all need as educators in the 21st century.
The open lab for all CCSF Faculty and Staff is located in Batmale Hall, room 313 on the Ocean campus. CCSF employees appreciate working in this quiet environment. Applications not available on the standard CCSF desktop or laptop, such as Dreamweaver, Contribute, and PhotoShop, are available.
Additional computers and a printer are located in Batmale 422 for those who need to work during evenings and weekends.
The Technology Learning Center (TLC) is partially funded by the California Community Colleges Technology Infrastructure Program, a part of the Technology Human Resources Fund.
For more detailed information about the accomplishments of the TLC and its involvement with the Desktop Upgrade Initiative, see the TLC Reports page.
The TLC provides on-site technical support by staff and student interns/lab aides. Come in to work on a project knowing that help is nearby!
James Rogers is the Help Desk Coordinator. The Help Desk is another source of technical support for CCSF faculty and staff. You can reach the Help Desk at 239-3711 or at the Help Desk website, http://www.ccsf.edu/helpdesk. Phone messages left in voice mail will be returned in one working day. E-mail can be directed to email@example.com.
TLC coordinator Carol Reitan came on board at the beginning of the Spring semester, 2004. Carol worked previously in the CCSF Language Center and Foreign Languages Department.
We are saddened at the passing of former TLC Coordinator, Barbara Stewart, who left the TLC in 2004 and the college in 2005. We will certainly miss Barbara, but are grateful for all that she contributed to the college and to our lives.
Senior Trainer, Vic Fascio, will be familiar to many of you who have attended TLC workshops. Vic recently created the TechDocs page, containing online tutorials and handouts from many of his workshops. This means that faculty and staff can access the information they need, any time of the day or night, even when Vic is not in the office.
