A cohort training program for emerging leaders at NWACC member institutions. The program is designed to build core IT leadership skills, address practical technology leadership issues in higher education, and build relationships within the cohort.
Components of the Instructional Technology Program include: an annual Roundtable on key topics in instructional technologies; recognition of instructional technology leadership and outstanding practices, the collaborative development and deployment of instructional technology tools; and peer networking.
Components of the Cybersecurity Program include cybersecurity workshops, expert presentations, best practice sharing, peer networking, and other collaborative activities designed to enhance network and information security expertise at member institutions.
The Special Topics program is designed to assist NWACC Council members in identifying emerging higher education information technology trends, understanding their impact, and formulating strategies by which their institutions can either exploit these trends or (safely) ignore them.
A collaboration between Orbis Cascade Alliance and NWACC produced the Northwest Higher Education Accessibility Technology Group (NWHeat). The initative is designed to cultivate a community of practice among faculty and staff supporting digital accessibility on their campuses through a series of professional development opportunities and by facilitating sharing of best practices, knowledge and resources.
