Mind the Gap: Faculty and Student Tech Experiences

Since 2004, EDUCAUSE has been tracking undergraduate's experiences and expectations with technology. In 2014, researchers paired the student study of more than 75k respondents with their first faculty study, involving more than 17k respondents in its first year. Combining the findings from these sources provides a multidimensional perspective about the status and future of IT in higher education. Where do their views align? What are the gaps? How can we optimize the impact of IT in higher ed?

Share this idea


  1. INFORM the audience about higher ed technology user perspectives. This includes sharing results from two national surveys about faculty & student attitudes, behaviors, expectations, & experiences to identify the tech challenges & opp's in higher ed.
  2. INSPIRE the audience to share their front-line perspectives on ed tech with professionals in IT leadership, student support services, & faculty training. The conversations catalyzed by this panel at SXSWedu are the beginning of the journey to change.
  3. MOTIVATE the audience to be the change they want to see in higher ed. Experiment with technology, challenge the cultural tech paradigm(s), or just provide enthusiastic support for those ready to do so. Leave this session ready to act!
