In-depth Guide: Understanding How Technology Shapes Your Relationship With Students

Isabel Thottam

by Isabel Thottam

Technology is constantly changing and improving our lives—everywhere we go and in almost everything we do, we interact with some type of technology these days. It’s incredible how much technology has shaped over the years, and every day, these technical aspects of our lives get more and more advanced.

Most notably, the ways in which we interact, learn, and communicate have greatly been influenced by new technology. From personal laptop computers, to smartphone devices and social media interactions, there are so many ways for us to connect, find information, and share with one another. In the academic world specifically, technology has shaped education because institutions have adapted to new tools for teaching to better understand how their students absorb information and the impacts it has on their relationship.

In this guide, we will specifically look at how technology has shaped the relationship between professors, advisors, and leaders and the students they serve. It will cover the topics of curriculum development, student success/advising, and strategic planning by exploring the “what,” “how,” and “why” of our relationship to technology in higher education. The guide will be broken into six sections, three of which will fall under the “what” category, two that will fall under the “how” category, and one delving into the “why.”

The “what” sections will address the types of technology used in higher education, the latest tech developments in the education sector, and the challenges associated with using technology in higher education.

The “how” sections will look at how institutions can overcome technical challenges, and how technology affects the classroom.

The “why” section will address why adapting to new technology is necessary and look at what the future has in store for tech within higher education.
