KEYNOTE: ADDRESSING STUDENT NEEDS: ACADEMICALLY AS WELL AS MENTALLY

The rapid move to a blended learning environment has had an enormous impact on all facets of higher education. Colleges and universities have had to evaluate their course curriculum, instructors have had to embrace new ways of teaching and engaging students, and students have had to adjust to a new way of learning. And while many institutions have made great strides in addressing these needs, more is required as student engagement and mental health become pressing issues.

1:35PM-1:50PM ET:

REINVENTING THE CAMPUS: HOW CONNECTION IS CHANGING THE LEARNING LANDSCAPE

The world has changed dramatically and colleges & universities across the country are asking the right questions about how these changes will affect the future of education.  Student priorities have also shifted, and societal expectations are evolving. Top of mind is identifying the current competitive forces and how to pivot today’s challenges into tomorrow’s advantage. This session will explore how connection has never been more important.  How higher ed campuses have an unprecedented opportunity to create an ecosystem that connects the community, business, and students.  And how technology plays a major role in reinventing the campus and rethinking the future of education.

INCORPORATING SKILLS-BASED TRAINING IN YOUR CURRICULUM

Students have more options than ever regarding education choices. In the current economic climate, colleges and universities are finding that traditional degrees may not be as appealing to some as they previous were. As a result, many institutions are trying to figure out how they can incorporate non-credit learning into courses, create micro-credentials and leverage the growing educational technology market to offer their students.
