It is time once again for the TAB (Technology Advisory Board) proposals to be submitted. Technology Fees collected from students ($5/credit) are dispersed through a proposal system through the Chancellor’s office.  Proposals are due: Feb 14, 2014. Apply at http://www.uaf.edu/tab/

Each proposal must focus on technology of direct benefit to students either in the classroom or related educational/learning activities. Proposals have covered a wide variety of projects from enhancing software available to students in the classroom to new technology that assists students with analysis of lab problems to case-hardened computers linked with GPS systems for geology field work. TAB has interpreted “innovative technology” rather broadly but focuses on “innovative.”
