Utilizing the Influencer Strategy

In my pursuit of change at Lamar University to incorporate mobile learning and BYOD techniques into courses, I hope to implement some of the tactics learned from reading Influencer: The New Science of Leading Change. I have put much thought into planning my change effort and would like to share the strategy that I’ve laid out for my institution.

My Goal:  Ten faculty members incorporate at least 3 instances of mobile learning technologies and BYOD techniques into their curriculum and assignments, per course, by Fall 2017.

Goal Measures:  Identify instances of faculty successfully using mobile technologies in their courses using a digital survey in which the results could be published and shared among faculty campus-wide.

Strategy Leaders:  Initially, I will be the leader in this change effort but hope to possibly recruit a colleague in my department for assistance. In addition, I hope to partner with some early adopters that may already be using mobile technologies in their teaching environments.

Vital Behaviors: 

  • Faculty research and discuss the latest trends in mobile learning and BYOD.
  • Faculty experiment with the latest mobile apps or BYOD techniques by building a course assignment or activity using them.
  • Faculty lead presentations that share their personal experiences with mobile apps and BYOD.
