The Technology Revolution in Higher Education: IT as a Catalyst of Change - Sponsored by Wimba, An EDUCAUSE Bronze Partner
Wednesday, January 07 | 2:00PM–3:15PM | Millennium Hall (second floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
One thing we can count on is that things change constantly. Whether you're new to higher education IT or you're a seasoned professional, we each face change in our workplace everyday. The technology itself changes and changes the way we work and learn. Disruptive technologies have an impact on our business processes. Students' needs and perspectives change. The consumerization of IT changes what we provide and how we provide it. Cyberscholarship is changing the way we can do research. Environmental issues bring critically important change. Our use of and provision of technology make us key change agents at our institutions. This panel will bring together distinguished leaders in the arenas of teaching and learning, infrastructure and enterprise systems, and e-research and e-scholarship to examine key changes, impacts, and directions for the successful integration of change in our work.
