Instructional/Information Technology at CUNY: Bridging Gaps
The City University of New York covers a broad array of campuses, programs and student needs. Recent studies have highlighted the significant role that CUNY plays in providing access to education and opportunities for its students. Digital technologies and online programs can help us bridge gaps to access, reduce commuting stress, provide critical services and reach new student audiences. But, to work successfully, digital technologies also require development, labor, training, maintenance and reliable access to devices, data and time. The 18th annual CUNY IT Conference on “Bridging Gaps” will explore the disparities that technologies mitigate and how technology can help us overcome barriers to connection and learning.
The theme of “Bridging Gaps” includes:
1. What barriers to success do our students face that technology may address? What emerging technologies have the potential to create new solutions to old problems?
2. What are challenges that our faculty and administrators face in using these technologies to bridge gaps at CUNY? How do we best address these challenges?
3. How can CUNY continue to develop and sustain outstanding digital pedagogy, along with a commitment to access and digital equality for CUNY’s students?
