Tuesday, September 30 | 9:00AM–10:30AM | West Hall A2
Session Type: Professional Development
Colleges and universities today face challenges that demand new ways of thinking about their core mission of teaching and learning. Different kinds of innovation within higher education have begun to target perceived problems with promising—yet varying—results. Online education and competency-based education have already had major disruptive effects with implications for yet more. How can higher education leaders cultivate and encourage disruptive innovation to best serve their institutions? What do administrators, technologists, and educators need to know to be effective in an environment of disruptive innovation? In this session, Harvard Business School professor and best-selling author Clay Christensen will discuss his theory of disruptive innovation and why it matters to higher education.
