Unlock Time to Drive IT Innovation

Viewing Location: Philadelphia
Session Type: Industry Led
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session
Higher ed IT burnout is real. IT teams are expected to innovate at lightspeed to overcome today’s higher ed challenges around decreasing enrollments, accessibility, affordability, and equity. While the pandemic gave IT leaders hero status with the swift shift to online learning and remote work, it also robbed IT teams of the time needed to focus on the future and innovation. Time is your most precious resource. What if you could unlock time to focus less on operations and more on driving digital transformation and sustainable change? What if you could eliminate burnout and retain and hire IT talent for the strategic technology projects that impact student recruitment, retention, and success? Moderated by Matt Loecke from managed IT services partner Apogee, and with insights from our distinguished panel—Dr. Kimberley Marshall, CIO of Morehouse College, and Rob Dunkelberger, CIO of Lycoming College—we’ll examine EDUCAUSE IT data so you can compare your IT investment and resource allocations to other institutions to determine areas of under- or over-investment and potential realignment. The panel will also look at strategic technology planning data and the role of IT partnerships for real-world experiences, insights, and advice for unlocking time to focus on innovation and paradigm-shifting projects that will propel your campus forward.
