How the Pandemic Gave IT a Seat at the Table

For information technology leaders in higher education, one silver lining of the pandemic has been the opportunity it has given IT to shine at a strategic level. In this panel discussion, CIOs will share how they have been able to get involved in pandemic response planning, fast-track IT projects, provide critical solutions to campus challenges, elevate the position of IT within institutional leadership, and more.


Teaching Technology Trends: Remote Spring Data and Future Implications

What impact has the pandemic-induced remote spring had on teaching and learning technology usage trends in U.S. higher education, and what do 2020 tech patterns suggest about the student experience of the future? Richard Garrett, chief research officer at higher education research firm Eduventures, will share insights from the fifth Changing Landscape of Online Education (CHLOE) report, based on a unique survey of online learning leaders undertaken by Eduventures and Quality Matters. The presentation will consider which solutions are most used, the level of standardization within institutions, the extent of cloud adoption and more. We’ll also examine long-term technology adoption trends based on data from Eduventures partner ListEDTech.


Lessons Learned from Remote Teaching and Learning

At Boston University, faculty and students have been sharing their tech tools, tips and experiences with remote learning in a series of talks focused on strategies for creating better educational experiences online. In this session, Dr. Deborah Breen, director of BU’s Center for Teaching and Learning, will talk about how her institution is building community around faculty best practices, as well as specific takeaways for engaging students remotely.


Campus Technology Distance Learning Summit: Fall 2020

As colleges and universities navigate the ever-shifting challenges of higher education’s “new normal,” they are also looking ahead: How can the lessons learned from the pandemic redefine teaching and learning moving forward? And how can the technology decisions made today impact the future? In thoughtful hour-long editorial sessions, education and IT leaders will share their ideas, experiences and outlook, and engage attendees with a live Q&A.


Leveraging Identity and Access Management to Overcome Higher Ed’s COVID-19 IT Challenges

Join Identity Automation and Moran Technology Consulting for a live webinar on Wednesday, October 14 to discover why modern Identity and Access Management (IAM) hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the key to enabling academic continuity in higher education. By providing streamlined and secure remote access, automated identity lifecycle management, and the flexibility to support evolving business requirements, IAM allows higher education to do more with less resources while enhancing security and the end user experience.


IT Fallout from the Emergency Move to Online Learning

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and institutions were faced with the sudden need to close campuses and move courses online, let’s face it: A lot of shortcuts were taken, bypassing traditional IT policies. Students, faculty and staff were using their personal devices to access university systems. They were signing up for new learning tools right and left. They were accessing the internet over open (and vulnerable) public WiFi. In this session, Brian Fodrey, CIO for Stevenson University, will discuss what institutions can do to rein in these IT security risks and better protect systems and data.


Online Learning Phase 2: Fine-Tuning Student Engagement for Equity

Students will need more than video lectures if they are going to survive — and thrive — in a digital learning environment. Now that many courses have made the jump from in-person to online, it’s time to make sure students of all demographics are actually being engaged and quality standards are being met. In this session, Dr. Jessica Rowland Williams, director of Every Learner Everywhere and former project director for the University Innovation Alliance’s Completion Grant Initiative, will share strategies for measuring student engagement and boosting outcomes with a focus on equity.


What Will the Fall Semester Look Like?

Higher education institutions across the country are facing a lot of uncertainty as they make plans for fall. While some are reopening campuses with new accommodations for physical distancing, others are keeping most of their courses online or modifying schedules to enable a hybrid approach. In this session, Dr. Elliot Stern, president of Saddleback College, will share how his institution is making these strategic decisions and what kinds of policies and infrastructure they are putting in place to move forward.
