Learning on the Dawn of the Digital Horizon

Make no mistake, higher education is changing. It’s changing faster and more radically than it has in hundreds of, if not over a thousand, years. It’s not changing because institutions or accreditors have asked for it. It’s changing because students have demanded it. As the sun rises on the digital horizon, we must rethink how we maintain quality of service, instruction and credentials whilst meeting our students on their time and in their place. Alternative pathways, stackable credentials, intrinsic motivation, gameful design and even virtual and augmented reality are the new higher education.

What is your institution doing to serve and to thrive? NUTN will convene a limited number of higher education leaders and industry experts for in depth discussion of these and other relevant topics. Join us in February just blocks from the Crossroads of the World in New York City.
