Higher Ed Remastered
For Eduventures Summit 2019 – and for the foreseeable future – we will be sticking with the theme, Higher Ed Remastered. Why? Because this phrase captures what Summit aspires to be every year: insightful, compelling and relevant. Remastered occupies the creative space between continuity and change, staring down both reactionaries and revolutionaries. Higher education needs honest, open debate about a myriad of questions that will shape its future.
The search for a truly new higher education business model must grapple with product, time, cost, and structure and address these important questions:
- Should most schools buy courses from the best rather than build their own?
- Could the value of a bachelor’s degree be packaged in 60 credits rather than 120?
- Could life off-campus be a more stimulating and less expensive classroom?
- Could judicious use of online learning focus pricey live interaction where it has most value?
- Could study and work be integrated to boost employability, reduce tuition, and increase student earnings?
- Should higher education be a series of micro credentials over decades rather than four years of full-time study after high school?
Eduventures Summit 2019 will wrestle with these questions, bringing together eminent thinkers, leaders, and practitioners from across the higher education spectrum to examine and showcase the best ideas, old and new. If there is one event in higher ed you attend this year, it should be Eduventures Summit.
The flow of the narrative and the diverse, but threaded topics, were incredibly effective and thought-provoking.
The EdTalks were a great addition….particularly with the focus on the student experience.
The quality of speakers and data/research presented was fantastic.
President, Purdue University
Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. became the 12th president of Purdue University in January 2013, at the conclusion of his second term as Governor of the State of Indiana.
At Purdue, Daniels launched a series of initiatives called Purdue Moves that provide bold answers to some of the greatest challenges facing higher education today. The four pillars of Purdue Moves— affordability and accessibility, transformative education, world-changing research, and STEM leadership —leverage Purdue’s historic strengths and promote investment in new ideas, guiding the university in its mission to deliver higher education at the highest proven value.
Former Mayor, New Orleans, Louisiana
Born to Moon and Verna Landrieu and raised in the diverse Broadmoor neighborhood of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu grew up in a politically active and socially conscious household, where politics was a regular topic of conversation at the dinner table. His father was mayor of New Orleans from 1970 to 1978, and a leading civil rights pioneer who went on to join President Jimmy Carter’s cabinet as secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. His sister, Mary Landrieu, is a former U.S. Senator.
Really well-organized event. Eduventures presentations were great.
Great substance and insight. Outstanding keynotes
All of us have been in a situation where we have had to validate our identity or provide proof of our abilities. You may have recently used your driver’s license to go through airport security or rent a car, for example. While these activities may seem simple, they...read more
Let’s start with two things I don’t think will happen next year: an enrollment-spurring recession (enrollment-spurring for the adult market particularly—my bet is 2020), and passage of the reauthorized Higher Education Act (unlikely with a divided Congress). Here are...read more
