Online Learning: The Proper Role for the CIO IsÂ…! - Sponsored by Accenture

Wednesday, October 16 | 12:40PM–1:30PM | Ballroom C
Session Type: E13

What role, if any, should a CIO play in shaping and executing an institution's online learning strategy? Is this finally an opportunity to play a major, influential, and strategic role in the educational mission, or is this the province of academics with perilous risks for CIOs? This session will debate the specific opportunities and risks for CIO engagement in online learning.


Identify institutions' cultural contexts that enable or inhibit CIO engagement in online learning. | Identify rationales that may make a case for broad (or narrow) CIO/IT engagement. | Identify personal characteristics that shape colleagues' impressions of the role for the CIO.


Join us for an extra 30 minutes in the 3rd floor foyer for an opportunity to continue the conversation immediately following this session.
