Collaboration for Change: Enabling an Open IT Architecture to Support Connected Learning

Monday, February 03 | 3:45PM–4:30PM | Rosedown
Session Type: Professional Development

As institutions transition from print to digital, they increasingly confront challenges related to the effective deployment, acceptance, and integration of new resources. The problem is that today's digital applications do not easily work together. What if CIOs could safely integrate applications in a day rather than months, and faculty could seamlessly combine tools into a course with one click? Then we would have invented a new educational experience to enable connected learning. Luckily, this imagined scenario can become reality. Learn how you and your institution can join a growing collaboration to move education toward an open, scalable architecture to support instructional innovation.


OUTCOMES: Learn about specific policies that can be implemented with surprisingly little effort to accelerate the development of effective and efficient personalized learning environments * Learn about practical strategies that enable IT leaders and faculty * Learn how to get involved in a growing education community collaboration guided by the IMS Global Learning Consortium
