    IT Governance
    One of the significant issues facing technology adoption in the HE sector is that IT Governance (the processes and structures for decision making about digital investment) need to be fit-for-purpose in the context of: rapidly changing technology, an increasingly competitive environment and uncertain budget futures. Institutions need to be agile and innovative whilst at the same time managing risk and maintaining core services on large scale. This is a huge challenge. We can no longer deliver incremental improvements to our communities through legacy IT governance arrangements. Universities typically operate as loose federations. IT Governance is a challenge. Extracting the most of the resources available to invest in new technologies will be critical. j.stokker- j.stokker j.stokker Feb 19, 2016

    New Technology Topic
    Cognitive Computing - I don't think this is covered by any other topic. IBM's Watson is a well known example and Deakin University's implementation is Australia's first implementation in HE. Cognitive computing involves self-learning systems that use data mining, pattern recognition and natural language processing to mimic the way the human brain works. It can offer up scenarios. IT "learns" from past interactions. I think we will see more implementations in HE. The way in which this technology is leveraged in HE is limited only by our imagination and our budgets, anything from the enquiry type services at Deakin to underpinning research. j.stokker- j.stokker j.stokker Feb 19, 2016

    Combining several of these threads into a common weave?
    I think there is a common bond between at least three of the topics on this page. Is it worthwhile considering that we combine these into one discussion?

    Partnership Approach to Adoption of Educational Technology + Increased Cross-institutional Collaboration + Advancing Cultures of Innovation.

    The Future of Jobs
    World Economic Forum released a report on 18th January regarding the future of jobs https://www.weforum.org/reports/the-future-of-jobs . This report higlighted that "65 percent of current primary school students will end up taking jobs that don't currently exist." The report is based on information from 371 leading global employers, representing more than 13 million employees across 9 broad industry sectors in 15 major developed and emerging economies and regional economic areas. The report states we are at the beginning of a "Fourth Industrial Revolution."

    Data security and privacy
    A few of these articles address these elements. Perhaps the developments in these areas could be more influential than we realise?
