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.
