As professors increasingly use myriad sources and formats of content to support instruction and learning, the larger campus and higher education ecosystem that develops, delivers, maintains, and disposes of course content in support of the faculty must adapt. Learn key findings from the "Mapping the New Course Content Ecosystem on Campus" research project (funded by the NACS Foundation). Discuss what is expected from campus stores in order for the new course content ecosystem to support evolving teaching and learning practice. Explore implications and opportunities for how we can build and nurture that ecosystem. We must ask and answer critical questions to remain relevant on campus. Let’s advance the conversation together!
1. Learn research findings the identify needs and expectations for course content and campus stores
2. Discuss and outline the new course content ecosystem needed and how your store fits in
3. Consider implications and document strategies for your store
The landmark NACS Foundation study—“The College Store of 2015”—gave the industry a list of imperatives for stores to address in order to be relevant in the year 2015. As we near the end of 2015, how are we measuring up to the imperatives and recommendations issued for the industry? Where are we still struggling? And perhaps most importantly, what are the emerging trends and new imperatives for the college store as we look to 2020? This session will guide participants through reflection, discussion, and critical inquiry to celebrate progress, evaluate today, and prepare for tomorrow.
1. Learn how the industry and your store stack-up against the imperatives issued for “The College Store of 2015”
2. Discuss challenges and opportunities that still exist today
3. Gain a glimpse of emerging trends and implications for collegiate retail in the next five years
This session is not eligible for support via a NACS Foundation program grant. State & Regional Associations will need to cover travel expenses for speaker attendance.
