The game is changing in higher education. Demographics, economics, internationalization, media, and technology are transforming the educational experience, educational institutions, the research process, as well as students and faculty.
Information technology on our campuses can be a key contributor to these transformations, and yet CIOs often find themselves focusing predominantly on execution and operations, with little to no time or resources left for strategy and transformation.
This year's ECAR Symposium, July 28â€“29 in Chicago, created space and provide opportunities for CIOs and their campus innovation partners to interact with one another and some of the most innovative and stimulating strategists working in higher education today. Together we explored how information technology can be used, not simply to run campus operations efficiently, but to actually transform teaching, learning, research, and higher education administration.
