I was pleased to be a part of this week’s HigherEdLive broadcast along with my amazing collaborators and friends on ACPA’s Presidential Task Force on Digital Technology. The video of our show is embedded below. I think there are some really great nuggets of wisdom in here. Laura Pasquini also curated a Storify of the backchannel.
THE FUTURE OF DIGITAL EDUCATION
ORIGINALLY STREAMED LIVE: WED, APR 1, 2015 @ 12:00PM (EST)
Nine months ago, a team of top scholars, practitioners, and leaders from a range of industries were brought together by ACPA to address the issues facing digital educators, students, and administrators in Higher Education. The multi-pronged charge and full list of committee members can be found on the Digital Task Force website.
What are the new competencies required to be an effective educator in a digital age? How can we best encourage new research? What are the emerging themes that require attention and resources?
On this episode of SA Live, hosts Tony Doody and Heather Shea Gasser, talk with task force leaders Ed Cabellon, Paul Gordon Brown, Laura Pasquini, Julie Payne-Kirchmeier, Kristen Abell, Courtney O’Connell, Josie Ahlquist, and Heather Rowan-Kenyon about their findings, recommendations, and predictions.
