I’m not one to use the SECTIONS model often, if at all. I try to find open source or free technology for students to use. I know that approval for new technology or license purchases are a challenge. We have a Hub team member dedicated to this process – he hears what faculty want and why, he tries to find if better solutions already exist at our college, he brings forward requests for license purchase to IT and advocates for new technology or license purchases. I am not often involved in this process; however, I like that the SECTIONS model reminds faculty to choose technology that doesn’t cost the students money and technology that students are able to learn to use quickly.
