Session Description:

Evolving business models, shifting learner demographics, technological advancements and countless other external and internal forces are requiring academic leaders to direct significant time and energies to leading major institutional change initiatives. During this session, seasoned chief academic officers will present case studies of major change efforts they were responsible for leading, as well as explore key lessons gained through those experiences regarding what did and did not work. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and/or share insights from their own experiences with and/or observations of change initiatives. The goal of this session is to help participants identify insights, strategies and tips that may be useful in the development their own toolkits for leading change.
