HED Summit for Institutions: Accelerating the Evolution towards Better Digital Learning Experiences and Insights
The HED Summit is for Institutional Leaders and Summit Sponsors

1:00 - 1:30 pm – Welcome, Introductions and Opening Comments

1:30 - 2:30 pm - Amping Up Partnerships: Solving Institutional EdTech Challenges
Across higher education, harnessing technology’s potential for enabling innovation and supporting academic transformation is a common challenge. Academic and IT leaders are finding that it takes out-of-the-box thinking and collaboration across an institution to disrupt the norms, architect a shared vision, and create an integrated plan to leverage data at all levels of decision-making. Strategic leadership is also required to guide the comprehensive shifts of institutional change that are needed to reach the goal of a fully integrated digital ecosystem. Join IMS Global members for a half-day deep dive into how collaborations are advancing the adoption and use of learning data and analytics. We will examine a variety of institutional models for collaboration, partnerships, and integrated planning where the use of data has productively shaken the status quo and supported the transformation of learning and student success.
  • Evolving the EdTech Master Plan: Strategies for Institutional Leaders
    (20 Minutes): 
    Institutions are finding different ways to foster cross-campus collaborations and engaging in highly successful strategic conversations to architect effective edtech visions and master plans.

3:30pm – 5:00pm -- Moving from Query and Reporting to Learning Analytics: Developing an Institutional Position for Analytics
Developing an Institutional Position for Analytics
Faculty, students, and staff have at their fingertips an immense amount of data that is underutilized for many reasons. For most, their use of learning data has been limited to querying to answer questions and reporting on how many, how often, where, and what is the problem. For constituents across the institution, these rich deposits of data seem to be locked away in a closet, only for select segments of the institution. But this is changing rapidly. Data opens up a range of possibilities to support student success in new and innovative ways. Admittedly the on-ramp for moving from data as a reporting tool to a broader application of analytics is hard. We will spend this segment of our time working together to develop guideposts that institutions can use to help their IT departments and partners hit the tipping point for analytics.
Panelists: John Fritz, UMBC; Karen Pedersen, OLC; Virginia Lacefield, UK.
Group Discussions (20 minutes): 
  • What are your institution’s learning data goals?
  • Where are you on the path to reaching these goals?
  • How can IMS help accelerate your progress?

Benefits/Challenges of Designing a Personalized Learning Digital Ecosystem
Personalized learning is a transformation of the 'factory-based' educational model. Moving toward student-centered methods of learning requires re-imagining the teacher's role in the classroom, from all-knowing provider of information to the role of coach or guide who uses data to inform instruction. A constructivist approach that encourages students to actively drive their learning is the new normal. In this session, participants will brainstorm about technology systems and tools to support this new environment.

Turnitin and Mindtap: an LTI cookbook
This presentation will outline how Turnitin has been integrated in the Cengage Mindtap platform using a spectrum of LTI specifications. It is intended to be practical and recipe oriented: which integration issues did we face? How did we solve it? Did the specifications gave us an answer? Did we have to go out-of-specs territory? We hope the attendants will learn from this cookbook and even propose their own ideas on how to address integration issues.

Making "Plug & Play" a Reality
We've fantasized about the magic of integrations where everything Just Works™. New standards and growing adoption are bringing us closer to that reality. However, even if this is technically accomplished, we're a ways from a truly "Plug & Play” experience. To reach this goal, the complete learning experience needs to be considered.  This session will consider the holistic learning environment, and see how the LTI toolbox with Content-messaging items and Common Cartridge gets us closer to realizing this vision.
