Session Description: Pedagogical and technological changes are upsetting the status quo of course delivery. To remain relevant, academic technologists must be responsive, agile, and forward-thinking within a context of rapid change, high demand, and limited resources. Learn how one academic technology unit strategically prioritized and responded to these challenges in today’s climate.
Outcomes: Articulate tactical work in response to the strategic goals of your institution and department *Redefine priorities in response to technological and pedagogical change *Retrofit Brown’s reflexive model to fit your own institutional culture
