"Why IT Matters in Higher Education" is the tagline for EDUCAUSE Review Online (ERO). This concept perfectly frames the article written by members of the UMN Educational Technology Services team--Lauren Marsh, Kimerly Wilcox, and D. Christopher Brooks-- Engaging Faculty as Catalysts For Change: A Roadmap for Transforming Higher Education, published in the current ERO issue.
The article describes UMN's Faculty Fellowship program and showcases the report collaboratively created by the 2010-11 cohort of faculty fellows. The report presents a roadmap for a "holistic vision of a university culture that supports excellence in teaching and learning with technology." The ERO article also features videos of Associate CIO Brad Cohen and University faculty members John Bryson and Aaron Boyson. Read the article.
