New innovative and disruptive technologies are always on the horizon. While it is important to evaluate specific technologies for their appropriateness to the campus, the arguably more important task is to look at overall trends to identify what foundational enabling technologies, policies, organizational alignments, and skills we need to have in place to be best positioned to embrace them. This session will provide some background and examples, and then engage participants in a discussion to identify emerging technologies and the possible foundational elements that we should be putting in place to help enable them.


Explore trends and themes among emerging technologies * Investigate ways to help evolve our organizations from being reactionary regarding adopting new technologies to becoming more proactive and responsive * Develop a way to prepare for the next new emerging technology
