General sessions comments:

Innovation - session on last day - how to support it within IT; CIO from MI liberal arts; role of EA in support of innovation.  EA often wants to curb innovation; how to take the middle way. 

Keynote was also about innovation.

Teaching and Learning sessions showed a big movement for bigger diversity from the LMS; how to organize that on a class by class way; neutral learning experience NGDLE.  Course specific:  Apps; productivity apps; the diversity of that, not doing back end identity; you have to tie the apps to a data driven repository if you want to know what the student does; making it very easy for faculty and students to get to the tools; yet gap in how to get to the data to measure effectiveness of the approach.  

Student success metrics; every session “what data do we need to assess that better”  everything has student success baked into it; no longer stand alone. 

Diversity/equity/inclusion - also more embedded not silo.
