Opening Keynote: How Higher Education Can Prepare NOW for the 2020 Workplace

Wednesday | January 23 | 2013 | 2:30 pm - 3:30 PM
Ralston Ballroom

Three major shifts will influence the workplace in 2020: multiple generations of learners will bring their digital expectations to institutions of higher learning and their employers; the spread of social and mobile technologies inside organizations will provide myriad  ways to “learn informally”; and  MOOCs— Massive Open Online Courses—will have an impact on individual learners. Taken together, these trends are sure to compel your school to reimagine the strategic value you offer your learners. By sharing insights from her latest book and two research studies, Jeanne will explore the dilemmas and opportunities facing higher education, the need to learn from “disruptors,” and the importance of rethinking your value proposition.
