There's a Reason We Call Them Institutions: Working in Higher Education Without Going Crazy

207 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

I’ve consulted with lots of institutions of higher education. Each was convinced that they were a unique snowflake, and that their challenges could not possibly be understood by any outsider. In fact, I’ve found there’s remarkable similarity across many (though of course not all) campus teams as they strategize, design, develop, and maintain their web presence.

Diffuse Authority
Audience Ambiguity
Site Proliferation & Content Accumulation
Team Turnover: The Revolving Door & The Lifers
Training Insufficiency
For each we’ll talk about what the dysfunction is and what strategies you might use to mitigate its impact.
