The EDUCAUSE Institute New IT Managers Program focuses on providing participants with the basic skills critical for the management and supervision of projects, units, and people. The program will provide both a chin-up view of the role of manager, as well as specific skills development in several key management areas. The program offers an invaluable opportunity to share information and experiences with peers and experienced IT practitioners in a highly interactive series of sessions both face-to-face and online. Register for the Baltimore event.

About the New IT Managers Program

The program will be offered twice in 2013, co-located with the Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference in January and the Midwest Regional Conference in March. The program's faculty members are experienced IT leaders with significant experience in higher education IT management and leadership roles, as well as in facilitating highly interactive and engaging learning experiences.

The program is designed for participants to engage in new learning and to share their experiences while building a community of local colleagues. Each program is limited to a cohort of 40 participants in order to assure maximum development of professional networking. Within each program cohort, participants will have the opportunity to learn both the theory and the practical techniques of management through individual and team-based exercises. Opportunities for engagement include the use of journaling for reflection and activities to include "pair and share," table discussion and report-outs, small affinity group discussion (and breakouts) and large group discussion.

The program includes five modules of intensive face-to-face sessions, followed by a sixth module offered as a three-hour online session. The five on-site sessions will be interwoven with the regional conference schedule. While program participants are not required to attend the regional conference, doing so may provide extended opportunities to gather practical takeaways from IT professionals across the region and further extend professional networks.
