|What I do:|
|As a System Administrator for Academic Technology, I am generally responsible for building, maintaining and securing the web, application, and database servers that support our department’s research and development efforts. These include Windows, Linux, and Solaris-based systems. I am also responsible for managing the technical architecture and general maintenance of the GIS Center’s computer lab, located in the Map Room of the Tisch Library.As an Application Administrator, I am generally responsible for installing, configuring, and supporting the applications that are hosted by Academic Technology as a service to the general academic community at Tufts. Online collaboration software (WebBoard) and dynamic web-based GIS map services (ArcIMS) are two such applications.
As a Project Manager for both instructional technology and internal Academic Technology projects, I am responsible for architecting projects, authoring project-related documentation, meeting deadlines, and coordinating the work of various Curriculum Technology Group (CTG) staff members and student developers.
As a Technology Consultant, I meet individually with faculty to assist them with decisions concerning appropriate technologies to utilize for classroom and project applications. This typically involves examining the instructional goals for the application, and recommending a technology or resource at Tufts that exists either centrally or within local IT support structures. Occasionally, if no appropriate technology exists at Tufts, then I will collaborate with peers and research alternative technologies that might be acquired to meet educational needs.
