Masters of Change at a Moment of Truth: Higher Education Technology Vision 2021
Every year, Accenture produces a Technology Vision that articulates the key themes emerging in the world of technology. We looked at the survey responses from leaders in the higher education industry to understand how these themes apply in higher education and impact the business of experience. Several technology trends have emerged as the frontier for higher education. Some, like intelligent platforms and AI, are technologies whose day has come in higher education, with 47% and 57% of respondents, respectively, saying that their institution is planning to scale these technology enablers. Yet other technologies, like multiparty systems, 5G, and digital twins, are experiencing rampant experimentation on the precipice of scaling. This panel convenes experts within and outside higher education to discuss these emerging capabilities and how institutions can be masters of change and start planning for their growth.
