The second annual EDUCAUSE West/Southwest Regional Conference was held February 22-24, 2012, in Portland and simultaneously online.

Amid rapid change in higher education and information technology, the importance of IT engagement continues to grow.

How do we effectively engage in teaching and learning on our campuses and beyond campus as technology shrinks time and distance? In the spirit of this year’s conference theme, “Engaging Everyone Effectively,” we looked at ways to collaborate, lead, and assess IT’s role within higher ed as it continues to evolve.
