Prepare for Lift-Off: Becoming a Successful IT Pilot Site

Wednesday, October 16 | 10:40am - 11:20am | Learning Theater Exhibit Hall C
Session Type: Professional Development
Your campus is an innovator in many ways, and you've been approached to be a pilot site for a new campus IT product. You'd like to say yes to the idea, but you're not sure you have the infrastructure to make it work. Join a panel of your university colleagues to learn the ropes and discover what it takes to successfully deliver and host technology pilots on your campus. The panelists will offer a dynamic conversation on the importance of stakeholder involvement, faculty engagement and selection, faculty development and support, technical infrastructure, student support, research and evaluation, and critical steps your institution needs to take to ensure your pilot not only flies but soars.
