Edtech Leaders Panel: Implementing New Technologies for Innovation
Limited Capacity filling up

Technology holds a lot of promise to enable innovation for our education system... but successful implementation only occurs when educators are prepared and supported. What do education leaders need when implementing a new innovative technology? How do you ensure expectations are met on both sides?  And as requirements grow, how do you scale your solutions to meet demands and sustain healthy, long term relationships? Come listen to experts discuss how they have managed to secure repeat business and expand the use of technology through building strategic operational teams that enhance the overall customer experience.

Located in the Boulder Library in the Flatirons room

Reimagining Higher Education for the 21st Century Workforce
Limited Capacity filling up

A new level of accountability is entering post-secondary education. Driven by a commitment to bridge the gap between “college” and career, educators are compelled to better prepare students with the skills 21st century employers are seeking. This pressure has driven the growth of alternative education providers and is pushing traditional 4-year institutions to innovate from within. Join us and meet leaders from both traditional and alternative education models who are responding to this challenge in unique ways.
