TLT (Teaching, Learning, and Technology) Group
Steven W. Gilbert founded the Teaching, Learning, and Technology (TLT) Group, an independent nonprofit organization affiliated with the American Association for Higher Education (AAHE), in January 1998. Previously he had worked ten years with EDUCOM, where he served as vice president; he came to AAHE in July 1993, where he served as director of Technology Projects and developed the TLT Roundtable concept as well as the AAHESGIT Listserv.
Gilbert is a frequent guest speaker, consultant, author, and keynote speaker at campus events and conferences, having visited more than 500 colleges and universities since 1994. He currently moderates the AAHESGIT Listserv, which has about 6,000 subscribers, and continues to develop projects to foster collaboration between academic faculty, administrators, support service professionals, and information technology specialists. Through his supervision of the Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR) Program and the TLTR Collaborative Change Network, Gilbert has helped colleges and universities plan for the improvement of teaching and learning through more effective use of information technology and resources. More than 500 institutions have already launched local Roundtables.
At EDUCOM, Gilbert created and led the Educational Uses of Information Technology (EUIT) program and the EDUCOM Software Initiative (ESI) from 1985 through 1993. EUIT and ESI were volunteer programs involving 3,000+ campus and corporate officials, including 800+ voting participants. Gilbert also launched EDUCOM's Corporate Associates Program (1983-1993), which solicited the active corporate participation and support of over 100 companies. Earlier, Gilbert developed and directed the EDUCOM Computer Literacy Project (1984-1986), surveying and facilitating the efforts of colleges and universities to help non-specialists use computers.
Before EDUCOM, Gilbert was a management consultant in philanthropy, advising corporations and foundations in the area of education and technology. His career began as a teacher and school administrator, including teaching mathematics and science at every level from K-12 at Princeton Day School, and conducting teacher training in Princeton University's Teacher Preparation Program.
