Liaison International today announced details about its upcoming Technology Enabled Learning: A BusinessCAS Symposium. The event will take place at Philadelphia’s The Franklin Institute on Thursday, April 26th from 4-6 PM.

From 4-5 PM, Dan Alig, CIO at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, will lead a talk about how technology has changed graduate management education (GME) at Wharton, and what he predicts current trends mean for the future of the industry. After Dan’s talk, BusinessCAS will host a short reception and networking event.

“Some of the technology projects that were experimental when we launched them several years ago are now an integral part of how faculty teach and students learn at Wharton. I’m excited for this opportunity to highlight what we’ve learned along the way, and I look forward to this opportunity to spend face-to-face time with my colleagues at business schools across the region,” shared Dan Alig.

“Opportunities like these are exactly why I joined the BusinessCAS team — to bring the right people to the table so that we can guide GME forward,” shared Bob Alig, the current strategic consultant for BusinessCAS. Throughout Bob’s career, he has worked with such organizations as GMAC and The College Board, in addition to directing MBA admissions and financial aid at the Wharton School as well.

Bob continued: “When I was Director of Admissions, I sought opportunities to hear those in my field speak about this very topic. Attending symposiums kept me up to date on the topics that affected my day-to-day work, and they offered invaluable opportunities for me to network with colleagues with similar goals and challenges. I am honored to be in the position to host such a symposium and look forward to connecting with the attendees.”

Seating is limited, so register for Technology Enabled Learning: A BusinessCAS Symposium today.
