Building an Academic Technology Framework: Change Management toward Collaboration and Innovation

Wednesday, February 15 | 10:15AM–11:00AM | Houston Ballroom Foyer
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
Conflict is natural in higher education, as technology crosses professional and organizational domains. Academic technology encompasses those technologies directly used by faculty and students in the teaching and learning process, including the creation and dissemination of knowledge. These technologies include the physical and digital resources for teaching, research, and scholarship. An Academic Technology Framework (ATF) addresses the fragmentation of support and the diffusion of leadership in the organization. This session will help you reflect on your ATF, if you have one, and how to use it to manage change to meet strategic and mission-critical objectives.

Outcomes: Identify the components of an ATF *Clarify key stakeholders, coalitions, and leadership that are involved in building and implementing an ATF *Consider and reflect on participant ATF efforts
