MLC Internal Technology Summit


Born out of the MLC campus family's work when evaluating the future of our student information system in Winter 2013-14, the Technology Advisory Committee recommended that the conversation not stop with just that flurry of activity, but that the collaboration and communication become a more regular part of working at Martin Luther College.

The MLC Internal Technology Summit (MITS) is an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students at Martin Luther College to get together to brainstorm and discuss possible future technology projects. The hope is to gather the ideas of the campus together and then use that information to help with prioritization and strategic planning for the coming year.

Who Is Invited


All members of the faculty, staff, and even the student body are invited to come and participate in any of the sessions. The hope is to share a wealth of ideas about future technology projects for the campus.

How It Will Work

Spend some time thinking about and talking with other people about what would help you accomplish your work here at Martin Luther College. Collaborate with other individuals about what is missing or what enhancement are needed with anything technology related on campus. No idea will be too crazy to not be heard and recorded for future consideration.

Come in, sit down, and talk about what the future can/will look like for you and your colleagues!

Members of Network Services, the Technology Advisory Committee, and the Administrative Council will be at each session to be able to ask any questions they might have to make sure that there is an accurate picture of what is bring discussed. This will also help as those three groups work to prioritize and plan for the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I have another idea?

That's great! This isn't the end of the discussion!

You can always seek out members of Network Services and the Technology Advisory Committee in order to discuss your ideas. We want to know what people want/need on campus, and the only way to do that is to let those two groups know what is coming up so that the ideas can be considered and prioritized.

Just keep talking!

Who is the TAC?

The Technology Advisory Committee helps with the planning and prioritization of technology projects on campus. It is currently made up of the following members:

  • Prof. David Bauer - Chair
  • Mr. James Rathje - Directory of Technology
  • Vice President Steve Thiesfeldt - Administration
  • Prof. James Grunwald
  • Prof. James Carlovsky
  • Prof. James Danell
  • Mrs. Deb Plath
  • Prof. Bill Pekrul
  • Mr. Benjamin Matzke
  • Mr. Bob Martens

What should I bring?

That is entirely up to you. If you have some material to share with the TAC and members of Network Services so that they can have a better idea about the scope of a project, feel free to bring along copies to share. If you want to just bring along a pen and some paper, that's fine too.

If all you want to do is bring your ideas and share them, then do so. There is no requirement to bring anything along at all.
