Session Type: General Session

Nations face an educational imperative: Educate more people, better, faster, and with higher quality. But a single model will not suffice. Education is a complex, adaptive system involving learners, faculty, families, employers, and institutions. Value is created—and co-created—based on aspirations, motivations, and preparation. In an era of rapid reinvention, how does higher education reset its expectations, design itself around the learner, and renew its commitment to using information technology well and wisely? This session will explore changes in learners, institutions, and employers.
