November/December EDUCAUSE Review: IT Professionals -- Plumbers or Strategists?

According to the Pew Research Center, 57 percent of survey respondents said that higher education fails to provide good value for students and families. The latest EDUCAUSE Review discusses the need for change in higher education, and how information technology can strategically aid in solving these challenges.

“The unprecedented challenges facing the educational system, combined with higher education’s cultural success at solving daunting challenges through the widespread application of information technology, have created the conditions for rapid change.”
?Adrian Sannier, Digital Strategist and Senior Vice President of Product at Pearson eCollege

Will IT become a “plumbing shop,” or will it remain a strategic element in higher education? Data, research, and analytics may be the next step forward.
