Session Type: Professional Development
Universities are under growing pressure to innovate, with the dual objectives of improving quality and reducing costs. Instructional technology can play a role in satisfying both objectives. But experience shows that new technologies are not always readily adopted by academic institutions. How do instructional culture and partnerships contribute to successful introduction of new technology? In this panel session, you will learn about one university's experience with the launch of an LMS pilot. This panel brings together different perspectives (faculty, instructional staff, and campus central services) to discuss key steps in technology adopting that can set the stage for educational innovation.
