Description Speaker(s)
With increasingly limited resources and high demands from students, faculty, and staff, institutions are finding it difficult to provide effective support services. Spend a day and a half with colleagues exploring a wide range of technology solutions focused on supporting student success, teaching and learning, learning analytics, mobile applications for higher education, MOOCs, and professional development. There will also be a special strand on using technology for communicating about campus safety.

Learn firsthand how inventive technology-based solutions can reduce staff overload, engage students, support innovative instruction, promote career opportunities and supplement services impacted by budgetary reductions. Presenters will focus on how to utilize technology to improve student support and staff development, so that you can (try to) do more with less.
