What’s in this episode?
Hello everyone and welcome to The Edtech Podcast! In this episode, we’re travelling back to (the) Future Edtech conference where a panel of Higher Education leaders discuss how to develop the team that delivers change in the context of institutional capability and leadership development for the “21st Century University”. You will hear about how saying no to change is embracing the status quo, academic and professional services collaboration as central towards bringing about change, and why downloading board papers digitally shouldn’t be beyond the University SLT. We also think about value and the tussle between liberal education and University as a bridge to work. Stay in touch and have a great week!

Quotes from this episode
“The risk is not doing anything.”
“I generally think that academics couldn’t care less what HR systems we use. Where the touchpoint comes is where IT affects academic life.”
“I think we’ve gone through that change of VLEs. The next big threshold is around assessment.”
“There is no end point.”

- In today’s fast-moving world, leveraging technology is essential to deliver the personalised, proactive and continuous experiences each student expect. But how can institutions embrace digital transformation and how can they leverage technology to improve the student experience, achieve operational excellence and strengthen their relationships with the community they serve?
- With a desire to help the community find answers to these questions, Salesforce.org launched the Higher Ed Summit in the US 8 years ago and has gathered thousands of higher ed professionals to share insights and connect with peers annually ever since. To better serve their growing community of education trailblazers in Europe, the team has launched a regional summit called the Higher Ed Summit Horizons. And this year, Salesforce.org invites every higher ed professional & institution leader to join the ranks in Paris on the 10th of October and be inspired by pioneers in higher ed digital transformation. From building brand awareness, transforming the applicant experience, enhancing student services, building lifelong alumni relationships, or managing change and optimising technology across the campus, you’ll hear from pioneers who have paved the way for the future of higher education and have driven all kinds of innovations at their institutions.
