Dear all late to the list, but might I suggest a discussion around leveraging relationships with academic leaders to bring innovation and champion standards and frameworks ?

On Tuesday we'll feature a panel with James Hilton, Keith McIntosh, and Tracy Schroeder, moderated by Susan Metros; its focus will be academic technology support. That session will be followed by a CIO roundtable to continue that discussion.

I'd like to put a plug in for the EDUCAUSE Learning Institute (ELI)<http://www.educause.edu/eli/events/eli-annual-meeting> the first week of February in new orleans. Proposals are due tomorrow, September 6th. We as CIO's need to be engaging in this discussion on how technology can play a role in shaping instruction and how changing instruction is shaping technology. I know from talking with Malcolm Brown that he wants to encourage more CIO's to participate in ELI so that we can help shape the discussion -- this is an area we as leaders need to engage in.
> We often like to ask is the CIO a plumber or strategist. Maybe a better metaphor we should use is architect or designer-- one who designs things to ensure the building/product meets everyone's needs now and in the future.
> How do we as CIO's help architect "connected learning" to make sure it can meet the needs of faculty and students at our institution as it evolves over time. This is a topic that really benefits from community discussion and there are exemplar's from all the different carnegie classes on what is working or not working that we need to be sharing so we can learn from each other.
