Jeffrey M. Stanton, professor and senior associate dean in the School of Information Studies, was selected as a 2014 fellow for the Leading Change Institute, co-sponsored by EDUCAUSE and the Council on Library and Information Resources. The institute will take place June 1-6 in Washington, D.C.
The Leading Change Institute explores higher education challenges, empowering librarians and information technologists to initiate conversations and take action on issues of importance not just to their individual institutions, but to the entire higher education community.
Fellows in the 2014 institute will hear from speakers from a wide range of backgrounds who will share real-life problems from across the higher education landscape for which participants will be challenged to devise and propose solutions.
“Because of my involvement in developing and testing MOOCs here at Syracuse, I’ve been intrigued by the many ways in which technology is transforming higher education. The Leading Change Institute will give me the chance to work collaboratively with campus CIOs, library directors, and higher education administrators on some of the critical changes that are affecting our university.”
