2:15 p.m.-2:45 p.m. Exceptional Experiences — Getting Beyond the “Physics of AV”Andrew Milne, Ph.D., CEO, Tidebreak Inc.

Students’ schemas for “taking a class” and “going to class” have permanently changed and will continue to evolve in the next decade. Students already expect online access to high-quality learning content from a variety of devices, and they are coming to expect that class time will be spent engaged in active learning, not passive listening. Exceptional learning experiences encompass more than just the technical performance of audio video systems; they involve the interplay between personal devices and installed interactive systems and they anticipate users that are more actively engaged than more traditional audience models anticipate. The challenges that face technology professionals in higher education today are accordingly changing in dramatic fashion. In this session we will examine the dimensions of exceptional experiences, talk about them relative to changing students and faculty roles, and examine the implications for technology professionals who aim to support both groups.

You will learn:

  • How to identify dimensions of exceptional experiences and understand how these dimensions expand beyond the traditional scope of AV design
  • The key principles for designing modern interactive systems (vs. more traditional “AV” systems) to support the active learning experiences that are increasingly called for in curricula
  • How to develop an appreciation for the changing role of the technology support professional in the emerging environment of BYOD and changed expectations
