Issues and Trends in Edtech in 2015

In 2014 we saw an upswing in application of data analytics as predicted in the 2014 Horizon Report, an increase in competency-based education programs, and the slow continual die-off of MOOCs. What is in store for technology enhanced teaching and learning in higher education in 2015? Will the higher education reauthorization act impact the growth of competency-based education and hinder the development of adaptive and personalized learning programs? Will the Internet of Things (IoT) reach higher education?

Join WCET's visionaries and leaders for a discussion of what edtech trends and issues are on the horizon. What should you be thinking about as you kick-off the 2015 academic year? What emerging issues are you seeing at your institution? Share them, and ask your questions during the open virtual conversation portion of the webcast.

"Issues and Trends in Edtech in 2015" will run for 60 minutes.
