Through a Glass, Brightly: IT’s Impact on Higher Education by 2020
Tuesday, August 28, 2012
The ECAR 2012 Symposium, was held June 18–20, 2012, in Boulder, Colorado. This event gave IT and higher education leaders the chance to imagine that the year is 2020 and to speculate about the biggest contributions that IT will have made between now and then to transform higher education. Attendees proposed 16 ideas and then explored the top-4 ideas in greater depth. This bulletin reports the solutions that came of these discussions, identifies the themes and challenges underlying all of the discussions, and shares advice on how to help prepare for and participate in IT’s potential contributions to higher education.
