Session Type: Morning Seminar
The growth and evolution of learning technologies challenges institutions to keep pace with emerging pedagogies and learning environments while making them relevant to their core missions, goals, and challenges. This applied session looks at institutional models of best practice and their approach to diffusion and institutionalization of innovation theory. Planning strategies for successful identification, selection, and implementation of learning technologies will be reviewed. The EDUCAUSE "grand challenges" initiative will serve as the session's backdrop, as we explore some of higher education's access, retention, affordability, and accountability issues. Selected models of best practice will focus on demonstrating success in how information and learning technology can make a difference together with organizational leadership in addressing these issues.
