Webinar: ATE Central - Home Sweet Home: The Benefits and Challenges of Institutional Support
ATE Central 2017 Spring Webinar Series: Think Like an Entrepreneur: Sustainability Strategies for ATE Projects and Centers
Sustainability for projects and centers in the ATE program can take many forms. While some project leaders may prefer to complete a grant-funded project be “finished,” other leaders see room to grow and continue to expand the impact of their work. We know how hard this can be! But it is possible, and it requires skills that are a lot like the skills of successful entrepreneurs.
This series of live webinars offers participants a framework for thinking strategically about increasing the impact of their work. Each session will feature a leader of a current ATE Center, who will share both the “big picture” of how they approach their work, as well as the nuts-and bolts- of how they arrived at the tactics that work for them.
This series is presented by ATE Central in partnership with Ithaka S+R. The webinar host is Nancy Maron, author of A Guide to the Best Revenue Models and Funding Sources for your Digital Resources. Her consulting service, BlueSky to BluePrint, supports innovative initiatives in the academic and cultural sectors to define, test and refine assumptions about new and existing programs and products.
Tuesday, February 28th, 1-2:30 EST
Guest speaker: Ann Beheler, NCTC
A fully-articulated sustainability plan may include some revenue generation and diverse sources of income. But for projects and centers operating as part of a college or university, the support your institution can offer is invaluable – staff time? Office space? Paid positions? -- and needs to be sought and managed with care. In this webinar, veteran ATE PI Ann Beheler will share some of her strategies for how her grant-funded initiatives work closely with her institution to their mutual benefit.
