New forms of scholarship, new educational pathways, and new interconnections and dependencies characterize the digitally rich landscape of higher education today. We are living and working in an age in which connections are blends of unique relationships and new social mores, crisscrossing an eclectic panorama of technology solutions and smart devices. In today’s world, planning and delivering IT services for residential and virtual campuses entails creative reexamination of all our premises, from partnerships and collaborations, to business models and processes, to services and service delivery.
This session will define and explore the new, connected landscape we all must gingerly yet strategically navigate. It also will examine how traditional higher education, whether large research or small liberal arts, should be adapting to the opportunities and challenges presented by the ubiquity and pervasiveness of connectivity.
*This presentation is part of an EDUCAUSE Live! Game Changers Spotlight Series focusing on higher education in the connected age.
