Higher Ed Remastered: Strategies for a New Era
JUNE 7 – 9, 2017 | INTERCONTINENTAL BOSTON WATERFRONT HOTEL | BOSTON, MA
Higher education is more relevant than ever. There is strong agreement that a formal education should be a universal goal, but there is a never-ending debate about models, value and fit. How do you match institutions that offer different educational choices, serve different educational segments, and enroll “customers” seeking different educational goals?
In recent decades, contrary to the static stereotype, colleges and universities have pulled off dramatic enrollment expansion, made great strides on inclusion, and institutional diversity has flourished. But expense and debt issues, disappointing completion rates and concerns about graduate employability continue to gnaw at public confidence. The retreat of state funding and a shrinking pool of alumni donors are symptoms of the problem. Under a new administration, federal support may waver. Longstanding assumptions about programming, credentials and quality assurance are now being questioned.
We invite you to attend Eduventures Summit 2017 where our theme is Higher Ed Remastered. Remastering is the application of modern practices and new technologies to established models and ideas. Higher education is not broken; there is no need to rip everything up and start again. But stubborn issues merit fresh thinking, and new tools open up new possibilities.
At Eduventures Summit 2017, we will we once again convene some of the most influential thought leaders and practitioners in the industry, as well as the latest data and commentary from our analyst team, to help guide higher education institutions and the companies who serve them. We will give equal attention to traditional and non-traditional students.
Join us in Boston, June 7 – 9, 2017 to engage with these core themes:
Is there scope for schools to develop stronger messaging built on differentiated programming and experiences? Can better prospect and student data tune superior fit and smarter choices?
Are traditional discipline-based programs past their sell-by-date? Should institutions turn up skills and aptitudes and turn down content with a short shelf life?
REMAKE Teaching and Learning
Do big data, brain science and machine learning promise breakthroughs or is the real pedagogy problem in higher education uneven implementation of well-established good practice? Does delivery mode matter?
REMIX Outcomes and Credentialing Options
What data do schools need to truly understand student outcomes? Are the days of the degree numbered? Are shorter, less expensive credentials pathways to conventional degrees, complementary or true competition?
REMASTER Your Institution
How can your institution both ensure continuity and manage change? How can you make smarter technology investments and get more impact?
Our goal is to help you think more deeply about these complex issues and start to take action.
Registration for Eduventures Summit is now open. As in the past, space will be limited and this program will sell out. We have selected the cosmopolitan InterContinental Boston Waterfront Hotel as our venue. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear compelling keynote speakers, interact with higher education leaders and network with your peers while enjoying the arts, culture and sports that are uniquely Boston in June. We hope to see you there!
