Campus Technology Leadership Summit: Innovating out of the Pandemic

Higher education's response to the pandemic has required agility, flexibility and perhaps most important, innovation. In this one-day event, education and IT leaders will share how they are managing the challenges of remote work and learning, adapting to change and solving problems with outside-the-box ideas and practices.

9:00 - 9:45AM PT

Session 1: Creating Solutions to Connectivity Challenges
While the digital divide has long been an issue in higher education, the current pandemic has put connectivity challenges in stark relief. The sudden move to remote work and learning has made clear that access to the internet and digital resources is essential to succeed in a connected world. In this session, education changemakers from Arizona State University's ShapingEDU community of practice will share how they are tackling the need for universal broadband access and how collectively we can build a more equitable future.

10:00 - 10:45AM PT

Session 2: HyFlex: What We're Getting Right and What We're Doing Wrong
As campuses have reopened for some degree of in-person learning, many have opted for the HyFlex model -- in which students choose to participate in class either in person or remotely, with both formats occurring simultaneously. In this session, both IT and faculty share their best and worst experiences with HyFlex, from pedagogy to technology and everything in between.

  • Christopher Coleman, Information Technology Coordinator, Louisiana Tech University
  • Thomas Hoover, Chief Information Officer, Louisiana Tech University

Session 3: How Tech Is Helping Faculty Assess Student Learning
While some educators fear the impact of remote learning on academic integrity, others are using this opportunity to change up how they assess student learning. In this panel discussion, instructional experts discuss how their institutions have adopted creative techniques and tools for assessment that help them uncover what students know and where their learning gaps exist.
