A cohort training program for emerging leaders at NWACC member institutions. The program is designed to build core IT leadership skills, address practical technology leadership issues in higher education, and build relationships within the cohort.
Components of the Instructional Technology Program include: an annual Roundtable on key topics in instructional technologies; recognition of instructional technology leadership and outstanding practices, the collaborative development and deployment of instructional technology tools; and peer networking.
Components of the Information Security Program include network security workshops, expert presentations, best practice sharing, peer networking, and other collaborative activities designed to enhance network and information security expertise at member institutions.
The Special Topics program is designed to assist NWACC Council members in identifying emerging higher education information technology trends, understanding their impact, and formulating strategies by which their institutions can either exploit these trends or (safely) ignore them.
