The University encourages faculty to integrate the use of technology into the curriculum and supports the use of the laptop / tablet computer for teaching and learning. As part of this process, all full-time faculty participate in the Mobile Computing program and are issued a laptop as part of the program.
Participation Policies and Procedures
Policies and procedures have been developed which govern faculty participation in the Mobile Computing Program.
New full-time faculty are issued a laptop at New Faculty Orientation. For information regarding New Faculty Orientation, please contact the Provost Office, the TLT Center or your department chair. New faculty who are not able to attend the orientation will need to schedule a distribution appointment with the Asset Management Office by calling (973) 313-6181 or sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faculty Laptop Models
All new full-time faculty will receive the current model laptop.
Faculty Laptop Refresh
Seton Hall has instituted a 3 year refresh process. This ensures that the laptop that the faculty member is using is compatible with the laptops being used by the students. In addition, it ensures that the faculty have access to the most current technology available.
