LMS Transitions: Lessons from a Culturally Inclusive and Transparent Change Effect

Presenter: Sasha Thackaberry, eLearning District Director, Cuyahoga Community College

Brief abstract: Working effectively on a change initiative in a strong shared governance environment requires successful collaboration with faculty leaders. This webinar focuses on the LMS review conducted at Cuyahoga Community College with a college-wide taskforce of full-time and adjunct faculty, administrative leadership and representatives from all stakeholder groups. The project management style of distributed ownership and short-term sprints led to genuine buy-in from all parties and a successful conclusion. The review was purposefully transparent, with all components posted on a public blog, including meeting minutes, needs analysis, evaluation of systems, and the internal LMS trends education process for the group. The project incorporated educational opportunities and incentives internally, with the use of digital badging and recognition of exemplary work throughout the process.
