Academic and IT Collaboration

The theme of this year’s ITS Conference, Partnering for Students’ Success, suggests it’s important to emphasize the value of collaboration between academic and information technology areas at our colleges and universities. While most attendees at this conference work in IT departments, many are actively involved with educational technologies, and academic initiatives that greatly impact IT work.

The following are some ideas about sessions that may be useful, but I encourage you to submit proposals (StarID required) for any session where the intersections between IT and academics have been beneficial:

  • Roundtable:   Successful IT/Academic Partnerships (This Roundtable would be for CATT members from across the network to come together for this.  Please let us know if you would be interested in organizing this session!)
  • Next generation learning environment (what we’ve learned from the RFI)
  • Accessibility/Captioning
  • Effective Learning Spaces
  • Educational Technology Initiatives

More information on the conference will be posted on the IT Conference SharePoint site as it becomes available.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kim Lynch, Sr. System Director for Educational Innovations.
