Description:
With the proliferation of edtech products in the market, how do institutions go about discovering, evaluating, selecting and then implementing edtech solutions to address their campus pain points? Who is at the table making key decisions? What information do they need about products functionality, use cases and efficacy data to make better decisions? The EdSurge HigherEd team is engaged in a year long design thinking process to research these questions and create resources to help universities make better, faster and more efficacious decisions about edtech.

Description: 

Are you part of the solution? Promoting student success at higher education institutions requires visionary leadership and a culture dedicated to transformative innovation. Even with these elements in place, however, many promising ideas fail to cross over into broad use. How can institutions best meet student needs, turning challenges into triumphs? In this session participants will discuss eight significant barriers to student success as defined by a forthcoming New Media Consortium publication.
