If there’s one topic that causes great consternation and hand-wringing in the halls of academia these days, it’s the topic of disruption in higher education. We read blog posts about it. We watch videos about it. We even read entire books about it.
This summer, you’ll have a chance to learn from some of the leading disrupters and chroniclers of disruption around. So disrupt your summer, find out what’s next in the world of disruptive education, and join me in San Francisco July 14-16 for the CASE 2013 Summit for Leaders in Advancement.
I was privileged to be part of the advisory team that worked with CASE staff to develop the conference program. I think we came up with a winning event. We have a great lineup of keynote presenters, including:
- Jeff Selingo, a Chronicle of Higher Education editor and author of this spring’s must-read book for higher ed marketers, College (Un)bound: The Future of Higher Education and What It Means for Students
- Daphne Koller, co-founder of Coursera
- Salman Khan, the founder of the Khan Academy
- Guy Kawasaki, who is — well, he’s Guy Kawasaki, that’s who!
In addition to leading speakers on disruptive innovation, we’ve also disrupted the typical CASE Summit format. We’ve taken a page from the TEDx playbook and mixed in some fast-paced TED-style presentations. We’re calling them CASEx sessions.
I hope you’ll have a chance to join us for the summit. If not, you can always follow along with the #casesummit hashtag.
