Who Moved my Cloud? Getting Faculty Acceptance of Technology Change

Wednesday, March 20 | 8:30AM–9:15AM ET | Room 554
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Faculty, who must rely on the teaching/learning tools we select and implement, complain that they cannot keep up with the pace of what's new. The University of New Hampshire has developed a model for replacing products. It gathers and values faculty input and keeps them informed. Using the recent example of our migration of lecture capture services to Kaltura, we will share both technical and interpersonal successes and lessons learned. Through discussion and activities, you'll see how our model can be applied to your campus, leading to increased buy-in and adoption of the tools.

Outcomes: Explore strategies to engage faculty in the process of evaluating and adopting new technology * Identify items to include and exclude from communications to stakeholders * Identify a potential product for review at your institution, explore pitfalls related to changing this product, and understand how to avoid them
