As technological innovation transforms higher education and quickly becomes the foundation of student success, the higher ed IT community has the opportunity to be the backbone of student equity on and off campus. Sustaining and building upon the momentum gained during COVID-19, we have the ability to leverage digital tools to propel equitable outcomes among those students who have suffered significant and persistent educational disparity for so long. From accessibility and affordability to learning engagement, adaptability, standardization, and completion, pairing a digital learning strategy along with available resources plays one of the biggest roles in widening the reach of education and closing the equity gap. In this presentation, you will learn how to build an effective technology strategy that connects digital resources and tools to improving learning outcomes. Supporting a commitment to sustainable student engagement and digital learning equity at your institution is possible. We have access to the technology needed to break down long-standing barriers to success and build the bridge to student equity. Join us in the digital evolution.
