State of online learning and today’s agenda
Keynote by Jeff Selingo
For more than a century, higher education institutions have entered into cooperative associations. Today, a new type of alliance is emerging in higher education. Rather than coalitions built around geography, mission, or even athletics, these new global partnerships are assembled around common sets of problems that institutions must address but cannot solve on their own. To tackle those issues and other pressing problems, colleges and universities need to scale for student and institutional success and to support the educational lifecycle.
For coalitions to succeed, institutional leaders need to have a stake in their success, look for appropriate partners with the same mission, dedicate personnel to the initiatives, tackle specific projects rather than vague ideas, create incentive systems, and measure their success.
This keynote will reflect on Selingo’s recent white paper "The Networked University - Building Alliances for Innovation in Higher Education." Selingo outlines ways that institutions could—and reasons why they should—move toward a more networked model to build strength and bolster the individuality they hold dear.
10:45 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Executive Panel:Strategies to Educate Students for 21st Century Jobs Moderated by: Jeff Selingo, Award Winning Author and Former Editor, Chronicle of Higher Education Panelists: Dr. Mark Lombardi, President, Maryville University; Dr. Ann Kirschner, University Professor at The City University of New York; former Dean of Macaulay Honors College at CUNY, Strategic Advisor to the Chancellor and Stephen Shute, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Planning and Resources, University of Sussex
The educational requirements of 21st century jobs are outpacing the workforce’s preparation, as millions of jobs requiring only a high school diploma disappear, and the percentage of jobs demanding at least a bachelor's degree keeps growing. Leading institutions are meeting the challenge by embracing new ways to provide a high-quality education to non-traditional students. To accomplish this, they are bringing together the entire higher education community, and partnering with community colleges, outside organizations, and other institutions. In this session, institutional leaders share their innovative strategies and partnerships for increasing access, upskilling the workforce, and helping non-traditional students get the education they’ll need to succeed.
Google Demonstrations Google Cardboard is a virtual reality viewer for your smartphone that’s actually made of cardboard. With Cardboard, viewers can immerse themselves completely in engaging and powerful content. Combined with Google Cardboard, Expeditions is a new product that allows teachers to take their classes on virtual field trips, immersing students in experiences that bring abstract concepts to life and deepens their understanding of the world beyond the classroom.
Google Jamboard is for teams who need to collaborate, ideate, and brainstorm (often from different locations). Jamboard is a collaborative, digital whiteboard that lets teams work on one canvas together via multiple Jamboards or phone and tablet apps. Unlike a traditional whiteboard, Jamboard saves all your work so it’s easy to return to later or share with others.
Google Session: Meeting Next Generation Student Needs Using Technology Jonathan Rochelle, Director of Product Management, Google and Jesus Trujillo Gomez, Account Executive, Google Cloud Platform
How can higher education take full advantage of technology to enhance the student experience? What possibilities exist to automate certain tasks to increase access, solve problems, and free resources to support more students more effectively? In this session, Google will engage with educators around technologies such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence, exploring how institutions can use them to meet student demands and provide better service to a generation that expects answers and solutions in real time.
Session: Institutions and Corporations Working Together for Better Outcomes Moderated by: Ryan Szala, Organizational Partnerships, Pearson Panelists: Cynthia Gallatin, VP and COO, Online Programs, Quinnipiac University; Mary Ellen Glasgow, Dean and Professor of the School of Nursing, Duquesne University;Cari Bohley, Director, Learning and Development, Engility Corporation; Tim Tobin, Dean, Choice University from Choice Hotels
More than ever, employers need a workforce with the education, skills, and competencies to compete — and that means they must retain more high-quality talent. Meanwhile, many institutions are experiencing declining enrollments and rising student acquisition costs. Today, innovative institutions have discovered new opportunities to help corporations address their skill and talent needs, and also increasing enrollments. This session will focus on how institutional leaders and corporations are building innovative partnerships to provide working students the new skills they desire and their employers require.
