Dr. Rahul Choudaha of DrEducation will be delivering a keynote on Tuesday, April 25 on "Accelerating Campus Internationalization with Technology: Emerging Trends and Strategies."
Here is the brief description:
As technology solutions become increasingly sophisticated and innovative, students are not only embracing this change, they are also expecting more. However, higher education institutions in general lag behind in technology innovation and student adoption. For example, MOOCs (massive open online courses) have gone from being revolutionary to redundant with varying degrees of acceptance by academia. However, as institutional resources decline and technology matures, many institutions are discovering that it’s time to explore, experiment, and engage through technology. We’ll look at the promise of technology for campus internationalization – including emerging approaches, opportunities and challenges for faculty and administrators -- and how institutions can leverage technology to accelerate internationalization.
The Forum sessions will explore a wide-ranging topics of current interests and emerging innovations related to technology spread across four different themes--Technology for Inclusion, Technology for Collaboration, Technology for Administration, and Technology for Learning.
