I, along with a panel of my colleagues at both ACPA and NASPA, participated in a panel on the implications of the new Student Affairs Technology competency for higher education practice. (ACPA/NASPA Competencies for Student Affairs Educators) Above is the video of the ACPA session, while below you will find additional information and resources from our sessions.
August 24th, 2015, NASPA and ACPA approved the revised version of the Student Affairs Competencies. There were a number of changes, but one of the most significant was the addition of Technology. This new competency solidifies technology as an essential part of our work, not just a fad that can be embraced by some and not others. Whether you are an avid tech user or delayed adopter, this session will define and give significance to technology skills for every level of our field.
