Date: Tue, Feb 28th, 2023
Time: 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Description:

We live in an era of shiny tech toys and bombastic claims of historic transformation.  The cacophony is deafening and makes charting the right path forward for institutional technology unclear. AI, ML, chatbots, blockchain, metaverse, virtual reality, and more, what do they even mean and more importantly what do they mean for improving student outcomes and securing the future of higher education?  In this candid fireside chat, hear from industry veterans, Nicole Engelbert and Lauren Farese, about how to find the signal in the noise, what it means for your student experience strategy, and how these emergent technologies can or should be incorporated into your institution’s core technology.
