Bridge to Excellence: Strategic and Organic Approaches to Academic Technology Integration and Collaboration

Wednesday, January 28 | 11:30AM–1:00PM | Marina Ballroom D
Session Type: Professional Development
We will discuss how both IT staff and faculty benefit from close collaboration and interconnections between the two entities, including when professionals serve both roles simultaneously. By examining the various processes that involve planning, implementing, evaluating, and sharing instructional and design strategies, see how the entire campus can be involved, including libraries and centers for teaching excellence. The result of such ongoing collaboration is clear communication, as well as continuous improvement of online, blended, and face-to-face teaching and learning environments.

OUTCOMES: Discover practical strategies for improving technology integration * Identify unique ways for faculty to receive professional development and share work * Explore how organizational structures augment or inhibit collaboration and partnership
