Monday, May 22 2:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Presentation Description
What are the information technology uses and skills of undergraduate students, how does their use of these technologies contribute to their undergraduate experience, and how does IT add to their learning? Answers to these questions are provided by 18,039 students at 63 higher education institutions in their responses to surveys for the 2005 ECAR study. Comparisons are also made between ECAR 2004 and 2005 study results

Judy Borreson Caruso is a Research Fellow with the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR) and Director of Policy and Planning at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has been involved in information technology for more than 25 years at UW-Madison. An ECAR fellow since July 2002, she has participated in enterprise resource planning (ERP), IT security and student studies. She served as one of two principal investigators of the ECAR Study of Students and Information Technology, 2005: Convenience, Connection, Control, and Learning. Judy has also authored an ECAR Research Bulletin on policy development and is currently working on one focusing on student experiences with course management systems.

Steven J. McDonald

Rhode Island School of Design


Wednesday, May 24 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Presentation Description
Don't know a copyright from a right-click-copy?  Assume that every "educational" use is also a "fair" one?  Think that all that law stuff is just plain boring?  WRONG!  Come to this session to gain an understanding of basic copyright principles as they apply in the context of higher education generally and web-enhanced education specifically.  It'll actually be fun and interesting, and, as a special bonus, every attendee will leave with at least one copyright to his or her name!

Steven J. McDonald is General Counsel at the Rhode Island School of Design and previously served as Associate Legal Counsel at The Ohio State University. He has handled a number of Internet-related legal matters, ranging from alleged infringements of copyrighted materials on student web pages to investigations of computer break-ins to an e-mail death threat to Socks the cat. He began his legal career in private practice at Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue, where he represented CompuServe in Cubby v. CompuServe, the first online libel case, and he also has taught courses in Internet law at Ohio State's College of Law and at Capital University Law School.
