The leader in practice, policy, and advocacy of tech-enhanced education
In 1988, in response to emergent educational technology and the need to bring together higher education leaders, innovators, and practitioners, WICHE established WCET – the WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies. A national, member-driven, nonprofit unit of WICHE, WCET brings together colleges, universities, higher education organizations, and companies to collectively improve the quality and reach of technology-enhanced learning programs.
Over 30 years later, WCET is well recognized among North America’s most informative, reliable, and forward-thinking organizations serving technology and innovation in higher education. Demand for its services, expertise, and forums–throughout and beyond WCET’s 365+ member institutions–continues to grow.
Defined broadly, technology-enhanced learning is a field that encompasses all ways and levels at which technology can improve teaching and learning–not only at the level of individual classroom or platform innovations, but also how these innovations can better infuse higher education’s DNA to improve student access and opportunity.
WCET serves this field by providing timely and relevant information and resources for its network. WCET members enjoy distinctive opportunities to connect and work with peers on policies and practices that can increase student success by leveraging educational technology.
