Discussion: Leading the Next-Generation Digital Learning Environment

Thursday, April 28 | 2:35PM–3:20PM
Session Type: Professional Development
Effective leadership is essential if an institution is to make progress toward realizing a next-generation digital learning environment. Key challenges for leadership include creating a vision that is shared across all key stakeholders and the coordination of programs and projects across the cohort of campus organizations that contribute to the support of teaching and learning on campus. In this session, three campus leaders-including a provost, CIO, and a learning technologies vice-provost-will share their ideas and discuss with participants the issues attendant to the intersection of leadership and the evolution of our learning environments. By participating, attendees will explore the opportunities and challenges of cohort leadership in the strategic areas of learning environments and will be able to engage in discussion with the presenters to enable a broader and richer exploration of the issues and opportunities in leading the NGDLE locally at their institution.
