Additional Information

WHAT'S ON DECK FOR THE DAY The Changing University: A Regional Discussion Extraordinary Change Is Coming   What will teaching, learning, and working in the Digital Age of Higher Education actually be like in 2025?  How much should today’s faculty and administrators do to prepare for this future? There is no question that extraordinary change is coming.  The question is, how much of that change is within our powers of prediction, and how should we proactively prepare for the future?   Participate in the first regional OLC Collaborate discussion on the “Changing University” and share in an open dialogue with other colleagues from around the region.   Keynote speakers will offer insightful views of the changing university through short, focused presentations. This will bring together how the use of technologies, the dictate of economic realities, increasing regulatory oversight, the need for constant innovation, and new societal expectations of what colleges can and should be are bringing change to higher education.   Presentations will be followed by facilitator-led discussions to allow participants to delve into each topic in greater detail.  OLC Collaborate scribes will document the discussions throughout the day, culminating in a collaborate regional response to the changing university.
