In recent years, there has been a growing interest in leveraging digital learning solutions to promote effective teaching and learning practices, while at the same time use digital technologies to connect with students, building closer ties and establishing a sense of community. These interests has been driven, in part, by concerns around the affordability of a college education, particularly course materials, as well as the need to promote more personalized and engaging learning experiences for students. What is often lacking from institutions is a coherent strategy which supports instructors seeking to enhance their teaching practices and affordable solutions that can support students long term educational goals.

In this session at the AASCU Academic Affairs Summer Meeting, Ithaka S+R’s Mark McBride will join Tony DeFranco (State University of New York System), Donna Desrochers (rpk GROUP), and Dawn Eckenrode (State University of New York at Fredonia) in a conversation on allocating resources to scale and sustain digital learning and student-centered initiatives. Join the session on July 20 at 10:45-11:45 am.
