Into the Great Wide Open: Leading and Managing IT in the Age of BYOD and Clouds

Tuesday, February 04 | 9:00AM–10:00AM | Napoleon Ballroom
Session Type: Professional Development
With the emergence of BYOD, connected learning, cloud services, MOOCs, big data, and eclectic combinations of mobile devices and apps, the management of academic technology to support teaching and learning has become increasingly challenging. More than ever before, there is a need for leadership at the level of the CIO and other similar senior administrators to guide institutional planning. The target must be to provide the institution with the academic technological infrastructure it needs to meet its challenges in fulfilling its mission of teaching and learning. Join three senior IT leaders as they discuss provisioning academic technology and the role of senior leadership.
