Next week in California: a bumper crop of Forum interviews

EDUCAUSE logoNext week I’ll be in Anaheim, California, participating in the 2016 EDUCAUSE annual conference.  A lot will be happening, but I’d like to draw your attention to an unusual event I’m hosting.

On October 26 and 27 we’ll hold a special series of Future Trends Forum sessions.  No fewer than ten (10) guests will be involved, including some of the brightest lights in higher education and technology.  Since this is a Future Trends Forum event, every one will be on live Shindig videoconference, so you are all invited to participate, ask questions, make comments, and more.

Here’s the current schedule, with the roster of guests:

Wednesday, October 26th:
1:00 pm PST: Brian Gardner, Director of Academic Technologies at the Columbia University Business School
1:20 pm PST: Cliff Lynch, Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI)
1:40 pm PST: Allison Salisbury, Director of Higher Education, EdSurge
2:00 pm PST: Jonathan Blake Huer, Chief Design Officer, Skoolbo; Director of Emerging Technologies and Media Development, Ball State University
2:40 pm PST: Emory Craig, Director eLearning, The College of New Rochelle, and Maya Georgieva, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Digital Bodies – Immersive Learning.

Thursday, October 27th
1:00 pm PST: John O’Brien, President of EDUCAUSE
1:30 pm PST: Susan Grajek, Vice President of Data, Research and Analytics at EDUCAUSE
2:20 pm PST: Michael Berman, Vice President for Technology and Communication & CIO of California State University Channel Islands
2:40 pm PST: Casey Green, Founding Director of The Campus Computing Project

I plan on asking each about what they’re bringing to the conference, including some cutting-edge presentations.  I also hope to ask about their impressions of leading ideas and issues raised by participants they’re heard.  Above all, I’d like to get their thoughts on the future of higher education.

What would you like to ask them?  Ask some comments on this post.  You can also click here to RSVP for the event.

I’d like to thank EDUCAUSE and EdSurge Higher Ed for their contributions to this event.  And I’m looking forward to the discussions!
