Collective Action: Enabling a Meaningful Digital Transformation of Learning

Wednesday, February 20 | 10:45AM–11:30AM PT | Avila, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
You hear a lot these days about the need for digital transformation and innovation in higher education to support strategies for improving student access and success. Getting to a better future—the kind promised by NGDLE—will require closer collaboration among academic and technology leaders and the private sector. How can we move these collaborations forward? And what are some of the obstacles that should be addressed? This session will bring together institutional leaders who are repositioning educational technology as an enabler of innovation and change—by reimagining enterprise collaborations, procurement processes, and integration strategies—to enable a meaningful digital transformation of learning.

Outcomes: Understand the drivers for academic transformation at institutions and across the higher education landscape * Learn implementable solutions for overcoming obstacles to effect a meaningful digital transformation of learning * Develop a framework for collaboration and a single vision for the ideal learning ecosystem to support academic transformation and NDGLE
