Podcast: The Digital Preservation Network

Speaker: James L. Hilton, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, University of Virginia

This session will address the progress occurring in launching the Digital Preservation Network. With more than 50 institutional members, DPN builds on the higher education community's current preservation efforts by creating a federated preservation network, owned by and for the academy, which will provide secure digital archiving of the scholarly and cultural record. At the heart of DPN is a commitment to replicate the data and metadata of research and scholarship across diverse software architectures, organizational structures, geographic regions, and political environments. Replication diversity, combined with succession rights management, will ensure that future generations have access to today's discoveries and insights.

Podcast: Using Predictive Analytics to Improve Student Success

Speaker: Tristan Denley, Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs, Austin Peay State University

As provost of a regional university, Tristan Denley has pioneered a wide variety of initiatives to improve college completion and students' academic success. These ideas stretch from institutional transformation and course redesign in a variety of disciplines, to the role of predictive analytics and data mining in higher education. His most recent work has created a course recommendation system that successfully pairs current students with the courses that best fit their talents and program of study for upcoming semesters. This system, which combines hundreds of thousands of past students' grades with each student's transcript to make individualized recommendations for current students, was an award winner at this year's IMS Global Learning Impact Awards.

Podcast: Blueprint for Change in an Era of Rapid Reinvention

Speakers:

  • Elliot Masie, CEO, MASIE Center
 

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.
