The More Things Change: Provocative Visions for Higher Education's Future

Thursday, February 04 | 10:30AM–11:15AM | Texas Ballroom Salon ABC, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
As technology accelerates and the pace of change opens the door to new possibilities, where is higher education heading for students, institutions, and the ecosystem supporting them? In engaging TED-style presentations, three noted higher education provocateurs will share their distinct visions for the future of learning. Hear from an innovator, a strategist, and an entrepreneur about forces challenging old models and generating new opportunities. Using interactive technology to solicit audience reactions and dialogue, we will explore together how these viewpoints align with, clash with, and illuminate the path forward.

OUTCOMES: Explore significant ways technology creates new possibilities for the future of learning * Identify rising forces shaping the future of education * Understand appropriate roles for IT in leading and supporting change
