Schools often depend on platforms such as student information systems and learning management systems to provide a wide array of tools for different aspects of school life. These tools often result in siloed end-user experiences: the business office focuses on the billing aspects of the product while the admissions office focusses on the applicant experience. Classroom teachers may approach their class pages independently from their peers, while students may have different experiences dependent on their schedule. All of this can be further complicated when there are multiple divisions within your school environment. If your school is considering transitioning to a new platform that impacts many stakeholders on campus, this session is for you. We will explore strategies to: better understand individual and institutional needs, create transparency in the decision making process, elicit broad-based buy-in to the new product(s), and plan for a series of successful implementations, evaluations, and iterations. This session will be part presentation and part working group with time allotted to work with peers on developing your own timelines and strategies.
