Creative Disruption and IT Leadership - Sponsored by AVAST Software
All institutions strive to create vibrant learning environments for students, but often the pace of change is slow. Higher education is experiencing turbulence caused by changing demographics, student debt, a global economy, and the rise of MOOCs, to name just a few factors. What are today's opportunities and challenges for IT leaders, and what role can we play in helping our institutions navigate in this time of creative disruption? Our panel will explore ways that IT leaders are leveraging these opportunities and working across the campus both to introduce and to manage this creative disruption shaping higher education.
Learn to recognize and navigate the politics and opportunities associated with disruptive change in teaching and learning.
Join us for an extra 30 minutes in the 3rd floor foyer for an opportunity to continue the conversation immediately following this session.
