#188 – Celebrating Change-Makers in Higher Ed
Hello and welcome to the final episode of our “The Edge” series, supported by Salesforce.Org. This series is all about new ways of doing things in Higher Education leadership.
Thanks to everyone who has listened in across the past six episodes. We’ve talked about everything from trust in institutions, the lack of diversity in Higher Ed, and how asking the right questions around data is essential.
In this final episode, we celebrate “Change-Makers in Higher Ed”, speaking to three leaders who have worked to implement new ways of doing things in their own University communities.
At the beginning of each interview, all of our amazing guests give us a window into their failures and successes over the years, as well as approaches to making change viable, before going into their specific projects. These include exploring the potential of immersive learning and research in higher education and beyond, how to bring academia and learning technologies together for the benefit of the student and creating a manifesto for change for Universities to allow our society to flourish at a time of significant upheaval and volatility.
As we wrap up The Edge: Innovation and Intelligence Imperative on this episode, you will also hear a quick hello from Jane Armstrong, Senior Director for Higher Education at Salesforce.org. Special thanks to Salesforce.org for supporting this series.
