    • Legal Disclaimer The author has no financial relations with any of the companies mentioned in this presentation The intention of this presentation is not to promote any technology product The author views on technology products are based on his own personal experience, other faculty and administrators, and research when available
    • Personal Disclaimer Technology (hardware, software, etc.) choices, preferences, and biases are probably temporary Decisions about products I choose, like, or have to live with, are often driven by variables not all under my control Technology per se is not the problem. What the IT folks see as the problem is probably not what may get us stuck
    • Technology may help
    • Why this workshop? We confront innumerous challenges, have few resources, and little time to address the daily administrative decisions as well as the larger strategic demands of our leader role. (the nature of our work) Technology is often defined as a tool for teaching and/or research . Its use for academic leadership and management is often an afterthought.
    • Workshop Goals To identify what we may effectively tackle with Web 2.0 technologies To address in a safe context questions about technology and our feelings of inadequacy To explore the usage of popular web-based software. To strategize how to think less about what we do not know and think effectively about our use of rapidly evolving tools

    • Device and Web 1.0 Technologies Excel.  I make spreadsheets for everything.  Class scheduling, when faculty need to be evaluated, budget lines, etc.  Use it for grading too: plug in all the assignment and test grades, and formulas, calculate grades, etc. (rockprof, 09/03/08) A really fabulous Administrative Assistant, who manipulates the software with aplomb.  (…) Outlook Calendar and its Notes function too. (anthroid, 09/03/08) Copernic Desktop Search: Finds everything I need with the right search terms. (resis, 01/13/09)
    • Device and Web 1.0 Technologies Chairs should not be permitted to use the digital call forward messaging function to send chipper messages to all the phones in the department. It's just evil. (mendeddr, 9/3/08). While I understand the wish we all have—we evil administrators—not to actually interact with our colleagues, we can do that much more effectively—or not, as the case may be—by email.  Why should we actually have to commit our voices to some kind of vocal message?
