Educational institutions that master new technologies will have an edge in the increasingly competitive higher education landscape.  They will better serve learners and support instructors, and they'll make smarter use of limited resources and advance the safety and sustainability of the institution.  APPA's 2015 Thought Leaders report discusses the factors related to integrating technology and the campus built environment; using technology to enhance critical campus functions; and integrating facilities management and information technology.

The report includes a comprehensive section on using technology to enhance key campus functions, and each includes a description of the Role of Technology Today; a section on the Potential for Technology in the Future; and a set of Questions for Institutional Dialogue:

  • Student success
  • Instruction and pedagogy
  • Research and grant development and support
  • Learning environments and course scheduling
  • Human resources
  • Financial and other administrative systems
  • Auxiliary services
  • Campus security and mass notification systems
  • Energy management
  • Building automation
  • Space management and master planning
  • Environmental health and safety management

New technology will require new skills and new approaches to day-to-day tasks. The result will be a new campus for a new era, which will need to address the following needs:

  • Restructuring the facilities management organization to effectively integrate new technology
  • Crafting policies that enhance facilities/IT integration
  • Creating successful facilities/IT integration
  • Preparing the facilities professional of the future
  • Imagining the IT/facilities integration of the future: where we are going

The report includes a contextual introduction, a lengthy resource section, and a list of participants.  Sponsored in part by Jacobs.
