Description
WCET has long supported institutions partnering together to do more than they can do on their own. Our eLearning Consortia work has focused on the use of edtech to share academic, administrative, student support, and/or technology services. Some serve colleges in the same city, same system, same state/province, or across geographic lines. Every consortium is different depending on local needs and political environment in which it serves.

Join this workshop in exploring successful consortial models for services, operations, funding, and sustainability. We will follow-up with open discussion exploring how these models can be tailored to fit your needs. Finally, we will identify projects that WCET can coordinate over the next year to help your consortium succeed.
