What are the course goals for each of these?

ITEC 1001 Intro to computing


ITEC 2110 Digital Media


ITEC 2120 Intro to programming



Graduates understand and apply information technology concepts to acquire, manage, communicate and defend information, solve problems and adapt to technological change.


Graduates who “are prepared to anticipate and to respond effectively to an uncertain and changing world” must be able to understand and apply information technology (IT) concepts to acquire, manage, communicate and defend information, solve problems, and adapt to technological change.

Ultimately, graduates should be able to use information technology as a tool for organization, communication, research, and problem solving.

Graduates will have the ability to know when information is needed and to access, evaluate, and use information effectively and ethically.

To live, learn, and work successfully in an increasingly complex and information-rich society, students must be able to use technology effectively. Within an effective educational setting, technology can enable students to become:

  • Capable information technology users
  • Information seekers, analyzers, and evaluators
  • Problem solvers and decision makers
  • Creative and effective users of productivity tools
  • Communicators, collaborators, publishers, and producers
  • Informed, responsible, and contributing citizens


SST-Technical Report on Assessing IT Fluency

Beyond Computer Literacy:Designing and Assessing IT Fluency at a Liberal Arts College, Sonal Dekhane, Nannette Napier, Kristine Nagel, Jam Jenkins, September, 2008 SST-Technical Report 2008-001 (http://wiki.ggc.usg.edu/mediawiki/images/5/5e/ITFluency_Final_with_Names.pdf)
This report is a working document from 2008, do not cite without permission of one of the authors:{sdekhane, nnapier, knagel, cjenkins}@ggc.usg.edu

Abstract: We describe three courses developed for information technology fluency at a new liberal arts college, Georgia Gwinnett College, emphasizing the development and assessment of the first fundamental course. The requirement for an IT course sequence is a direct outcome of our institutional mission and vision. We share our experiences as an example of re-engineering IT fluency across degree programs and contribute the lessons learned from our first year of design and assessment.
