Incorporating Student Voices in IT Governance
Instructional technology professionals struggle to keep pace with the rapidly changing landscape of emerging tools and user requirements. Too often implementation and support decisions are made without meaningful contribution from the primary user group: students. In the past year, three schools at Harvard University independently developed student advisory committees in an effort to help guide decisions regarding tool adoption, allocation of services, and support models. Participants at this session will hear lessons learned from the implementation and evaluation of the two committees and consider the opportunities presented by the creation of a student advisory committee at their own institutions.
