Tuesday, July 8, 2008
This ECAR research bulletin explores how Louisiana State University and other colleges and universities have overcome barriers inherent in new technology adoption by including students in relevant conversations and stakeholder processes. Related discussion covers linkages between strategic planning for IT, strategic investment using student technology fees as a vehicle for investment, and inclusion of students in IT governance as an expression of core values of the academy.
