1 Technology Resources  Dave Staudt Project Director, AN-MSI  Al Kuslikis AN-MSI Collaborative Project Coordinator

2 Technology Resources  Catching the Waves of Change  Trends in IT in teaching and learning  IT problems faced by Project Directors  Some available resources

3 Catching the Waves of Change In American Higher Education By David Ward Chancellor & Professor, University of Wisconsin (now president of the ACE)

4 Trend # 1 A Communication Revolution A Communication Revolution  Distance Learning – On-campus & off-campus delivery  The Internet and now Internet2  Libraries – online global information  Expectations - students, parents, faculty, administrators, the public  Proficiency in coursework rather than mastery  Changes take leadership, planning, money, training  What aspects should we implement at our institutions?

5 Trend # 2 Shifts in the Intellectual Division of Labor  Collaboration with faculty and students from anywhere on the globe  Academic departments must increasingly work together – the expansion of knowledge rises from more than one discipline

6 Trend # 3 Shifts in the Funding Streams Traditionally – state, federal, endowments, services Considerations  Tendency for states to shift their social spending priorities away from education toward prisons, highways, welfare, reducing taxes  Affordability of college – LOANS – Student DEBT  Private Collaborations - University Research Parks – intellectual property of the faculty and students  integrity & mission / identity of institution  who-owes-whom-what?

7 Trend # 4 Demographic Shifts & Accessibility Demographic Shifts & Accessibility  Changing demographic makeup of the U.S.  Employers demand that institutions educate a diverse population - especially public institutions  Life-long learning

8 Finding Our Strategic Path  Be aware of the changes  Use the currents of change to your benefit: Adapt!  Emerge stronger than ever!!!

9 The Emerging Academy  Active and Learner Centered  Dynamic and Life-long  Collaborative  Cost effective  High Quality  Accessible

10 Emerging Academy Themes and Directions  Consortia partnerships  Campus re-engineering with new business plans involving technology in teaching and learning  Campus-wide vision and a shared set of strategies for e-learning initiatives  Focus on student performance and learning outcomes  Re-examination of traditional classroom methods  New markets for educational resources

11 Faculty Engagement  Faculty communities of practice  Entrepreneurship as incentive  Peer review of course tools and designs  Online faculty support: Colgate University’s Collaboration for Advanced Learning

12 Teaching and Learning Communities of Practice  Provide a catalyst for rethinking teaching strategies  Explore and disseminate best teaching and learning practices  Cross-disciplinary  Participation provides incentive to experiment  Support effective collaborative networks

13 Electronic Portfolios  Certification: Demonstrate experience  Assessment: Prove the student meets standards/requirements  Reflection: the student learns about herself as a learner  Minnesota project: efoliomn.org Organized collection of a student’s work and assessments

14 Reusable Learning Objects  Flexible  Allow customization of content  Address individual student needs  Example: Merlot  Partners: Advanced Distance Learning Co- Lab, National Science Digital Library

15 Education and Research Collaboratories  Building a distributed research infrastructure  Research opportunities anytime, anywhere  Team teaching at a distance  Research mentors from R1 universities and national laboratories

16 AN-MSI Collaboration Center  Faculty/Staff Collaboration finder  Diversity learning objects repository  Online tutorials  IT Knowledge Management  Other?

17 National Learning Infrastructure Initiative Mission: Create new collegiate learning environments that harness the power of information technology to: Mission: Create new collegiate learning environments that harness the power of information technology to: – improve the quality of teaching and learning, – contain or reduce rising costs, and –provide greater access to higher education.

18 Campus IT Issues  What IT problems have you encountered so far?  What IT problems do you anticipate?  What problems have others run into?

19  Association of 1800 colleges, universities, companies  Advancing Information Technology in Higher Education  Annual conferences ~ 6500 attendees  Regional conferences  Publications  Seminars, on-line constituent groups EDUCAUSE

20 Advanced Networking With Minority-Serving Institutions (AN-MSI)  Four year, $6M grant from the National Science Foundation to EDUCAUSE  Working closely with AIHEC, HACU, NAFEO  Now in the fourth year, and expect to extend  ~100 minority-serving institutions, roughly one-third each community

21 AN-MSI Services  Campus visits  Strategic planning  Technical assistance  Online training  Remote technical support  Wireless systems  Curriculum and faculty development  Distance learning
