Hundreds of higher education technology decision makers – including chief information officers and campus IT administrators – will gather in Denver at the Transformational Technology in Higher Education (TTHIED) conference from March 24 – 25, 2016. Attendees will explore the latest digital solutions, discover best practices being employed on campuses and participate in collaborative learning with colleagues and industry leaders.

Formerly Campus Technology Forum, TTHIED will include a variety of keynote and concurrent sessions that feature new and emerging technologies. Program tracks include Leading Campus Transformation, Technology Pedagogy in the Digital Age, Designing a Connected Campus and Technology Solutions.

“New platforms for experiential learning, such as wearable tech, are creating innovative pedagogical opportunities within higher education,” said Daniel Gephart, Higher Education Events Manager, LRP Conferences, coordinator of TTHIED. “Why is it vital that higher education leaders follow this rapidly evolving environment? Because campuses can develop and sustain a culture of innovation that accelerates positive change within and beyond their institutions, and TTHIED works to inspire attendees to bring this culture of innovation back to their campuses.”

Bryan Alexander, president of Bryan Alexander Consulting, LLC, will open TTHIED 2016 with his keynote “Halfway Through the Tsunami: Higher Education and the Digital Revolution.” Alexander will propose answers to the question “How is education changing under the impact of ever-advancing technologies?” by surveying social, economic and policy contexts while examining how education is changing under their impact and exploring leading trend lines for the digital world.

The University of Michigan’s Perry Samson, also the co-founder of Weather Underground and Lecture Tools, will present “Best Practices for Quantifying Student Engagement.” In this results-based presentation, Samson will analyze the strong relationship that exists between active learning participation and student outcomes, plus the nature of active learning participation as related to a student’s grade point average. Closing Keynote Bryan Setser, partner at 2Revolutions, will focus on how organizational leaders can develop and sustain cultures of innovation that accelerate positive change within and beyond their institutions in his session, “Future Learning Models in Higher Education.”

In addition to three keynotes, TTHIED offers attendees nearly a dozen breakout sessions including “Wearable Technology and Virtual Reality: A New Era for Learning.” Emory Craig, Director of eLearning and Instructional Technologies at The College of New Rochelle, will demonstrate why higher education leaders should follow the latest and rapidly evolving developments in wearable technology.

“TTHIED’s unique, intimate structure allows attendees’ access to top IT professionals from colleges, universities and industry suppliers,” said Gephart. “Each session is limited in size, allowing for more give-and-take discussions to help create a sustainable vision for effectively managing resources, building seamless networks and conceptualizing the educational models of the future.”
