Embedding needs building. Building needs scaffolding.
Gwen van der Velden recognises that change agents operate in networks of influence.
To make change you need:
- user engagement
- institutional solutions
- a user-friendly pitch
Barriers to change include: student data systems, middle managers, staff learning needs.
Drivers for embracing technology: students, resource constraints, employers.
So answer these questions:
- What is your strap-line?
- Why would I support you?
- What problem, which I have, will you solve?
- Tell me what difference it makes.
