WHAT DO WE DO?
The Technology Knowledge Community influenced change by reaffirming its mission for our members and our role within NASPA. We would like to make sure that everyone knows we serve Student Affairs practitioners whose job is technology related and we want to help you if you have an interest in technology. Most members want to know how other Student Affairs professionals are using technology, how they can better use technology themselves, and in general what are the current industry “best practices”. Using technology to save money and social media are also hot topics. We are a group that can satisfy the needs of Student Affairs professionals who are Enthusiasts, Managers, or Scholars of Technology.
The Technology Knowledge Community exists to provide structure for members to explore and collaborate within the topic of technology. Given the history of technology, its great breadth, and potential for rapid change, we provide a venue for discussion, research, and the distribution of information about technology. The goals for the Technology Knowledge Community are to
- Explore technology’s impact on and relationship with student development, behavior, values, and decision-making
- Identify and support technology’s role in providing student services and developmental programming
- To inform the profession about new research and practices regarding the development and use of technology administration
- To offer technical and creative assistance to colleagues as they explore technology resources for their campus
We welcome the participation of any individual within our KC and we hope to be place for discussion, learning, and innovation. We hope to make the Technology Knowledge Community a wonderful opportunity for graduate students, faculty, and Student Affairs professionals to come together and share knowledge, experience, and our passion for Technology.
