During the month of May, I teamed up with Guidebook to offer a collaborative conversation of what it means to lead in the digital space within higher education.
There were several pieces of content, including blogs, an infographic, and webinar all listed below. This series took the idea of digital leadership beyond a physical campus and into strategic partners with edtech vendors. Thank you so much to Guidebook, especially Jordan McArthur for being a fantastic partner on this project!
Josie Ahlquist asks “What does leadership look like in our globally connected and viral-fueled society?” Using the new student affairs tech competencies, as well as research on leaders in higher education, she’ll shed light on our new concrete direction.
Guidebook will pull back the curtain and discuss how it takes its cues and philosophies from the higher ed world, while still injecting its own brand of innovation. Through some of Guidebook’s most common mobile app use cases, we’ll look at how our clients have informed our own development and how our product has influenced paradigms surrounding campus communication.
Is there a relationship to be had beyond client-vendor when it comes to working with tech vendors? Is it possible to create a truly mutually-beneficial partnership with a company that also sells you a product? Josie Ahlquist and Guidebook will work together to answer these questions and offer up strategies for creating collaborations that count.
Watch the recorded live conversation on Google Hangout, where a panel of #SApros and #EdTech vendors discussed how they’ve created collaborative relationships with each other in the past, strategies they use to communicate across industries, and stories from the technology development front lines.

Join the Digital Leadership Conversation.
While this series lasted one month, the digital leadership conversation needs to be yearlong. Join in the digital leadership conversation on twitter at #diglead and of course stay tuned on this blog and my Digital Leadership Newsletter for future projects to continue education and research on this topic.
