July 7 –> EDUCAUSE Live Web Seminar: What do newer generation faculty want from IT services?

Speakers: Bruce Maas, Chief Information Officer, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Michael Zimmer, Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Date: July 7, 2010
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET (12:00 p.m. CT, 11:00 a.m. MT, 10:00 a.m. PT).

In this free, hour-long web seminar, “What Do Newer Generation Faculty Want from IT Services?,” Bruce Maas and Michael Zimmer join host Steve Worona to talk about how former Net Gen and late Gen X students are becoming our colleagues and bringing the attitudes, aptitudes, expectations, and learning styles of their generation with them. Tune in to hear a discussion on the inherent tensions and opportunities in both supporting and getting out of the way of faculty who are “digital natives.”

From DSC:
I would propose that it’s not necessarily just “getting out of their way”, but rather teaming up with them to make innovation continue to occur on our campuses. We need team-developed / relayed courses. Gen X or not, no one can do it all anymore.
