Campus IT Policy Workshop 2012
July 18–19 | Chicago, Illinois
Learn from seasoned practitioners about the importance of campus policy and how it impacts IT services.
The Campus IT Policy Workshop was held July 18-19. View the presentation slides:
- Welcome and Introductions
- The EDUCAUSE Policy Program: From Congress to Campus by Greg Jackson
- IT Policy in Perspective (a UCLA viewpoint) by Kent Wada
Policy challenges that require collaboration among campus IT staff and their non-IT counterparts are increasingly common:
- Why can’t we use data from transcripts for alumni fundraisers?
- Why is it a bad idea to publish student tweets on our student recruitment website?
- Why can’t IT staff enforce copyright compliance by excluding violators from the campus network?
The Campus IT Policy Workshop is a hands-on learning experience for campus IT staff who find themselves engaging with policies that go beyond IT, and their non-IT counterparts whose work depends on IT.
You'll learn from seasoned practitioners using case studies and hands-on activities focused on the importance of campus policy and how it impacts on IT services. This workshop teaches:
- The differences between policy, procedures, best practices, and guidelines, and when a policy is necessary.
- How compliance overlaps with policy, and what to do in absence of compliance requirement.
- How to approach issues from a policy process perspective.
- The basic steps involved in developing IT policy, including working with others on campus.
Key takeaway: The workshop will guide you through the development of a campus policy plan that you can immediately put into practice when you return from the workshop.
