2014 Conference - Transformation of Academic & Special Event Support
Share |

* Session recording is not available. 

About this session:

This session will share how the University of Notre Dame and Old Dominion University approach academic and special event support.  Both Universities have gone through transformations of their respective support models that include staffing, student employees, training, cross campus AV support, etc.  It became apparent that each of our previous models was inefficient and unable to meet the growing demand of support across our campuses. 

Learn how we have each developed and promoted AV support standards and how we stretch our resources farther through volume purchasing, streamlined troubleshooting and more self –sufficient faculty and guests.  See how our models make student, faculty, and staff training easier and more effective.
