Leading the Higher Education IT Organization: Six Building Blocks of Success
Laster, Stephen J.
EDUCAUSE Review, v46 n3 p14-16, 18, 20, 22-23 May-Jun 2011
Many of the worries for IT leaders are new--and much broader. The traditional teaching, learning, and research models of the past will not be and cannot be the models for the future. These models break down as costs (human and financial) continue to grow faster than they can be funded, as digital natives change forever the nature of being "in class," and as technology advances people's notions of community, connectedness, collaboration, and learning. To succeed tomorrow, IT leaders today need to address several core technology issues and challenges. Together, these issues constitute six building blocks that can form a new pyramid, one leading ultimately to higher education IT value.
