Campus Technology Leadership Summit:
Building a Digital Transformation Strategy
A digital transformation journey starts with assessing the state of Dx within your institution, imagining what's possible and then setting goals to get there. In this free, one-day event, education and IT leaders will offer ideas and best practices based on expertise and research in the field, to help inform your digital transformation strategy.
9:00 am - 9:45 am PT
Session 1: What Digital Transformation Means in Higher Ed
Digital transformation is critical to the future of higher education, but at the same time it can be difficult to define. To gain some insight on the topic, Campus Technology surveyed stakeholders at colleges and universities across the country about the goals and challenges their institutions are grappling with in their Dx journeys. In this session, we will present results from the survey along with analysis from a panel of higher education leaders.

Session 2: Enabling the Digital-First Campus
In a panel discussion moderated by Brian Fodrey, Senior Director of Business Innovation at Carnegie Mellon University, this session will explore how technology can help institutions find efficiencies in IT and administrative workflows, leverage AI and automation, and/or reduce paper-based processes so that staff can spend less time on tedious tasks and more time focusing on supporting student's learning and their institution's mission.

Session 3: Taking Digital Learning Beyond the New Normal
In this session, we'll look at the evolution of online learning and how education innovators are poised to move beyond a "new normal" to a "new possible" in learning models and modalities. We'll unpack strategies we are seeing emerge that are aimed at creating and curating student learning and support experiences that are immersive, flexible and use technology effectively to enhance student success — especially those driven by the emerging field of learning experience design. Join the conversation and help us learn together how we build out a "new possible!"

Bonus Session: Tackling Dx Challenges: Making the Case for Strategic Investment in IT
Campus Technology's 2022 Digital Transformation Survey found that budget limitations are the biggest barrier to Dx in higher ed. One key to overcoming that hurdle: Using data to articulate the value of IT and benchmark with peer institutions. In this session, we’ll explore the resources available through Educause's Core Data Service and how to put together a data-rich argument for investment in IT projects.
