Building a Membership of Higher Education Innovators with Foresight Research

Educating the incoming generation of workers and citizens amidst changing technological and social issues is a large field of concern many of us, across borders and cultures, have in common.

EDUCAUSE is a global nonprofit association of 2,100 member organizations, including higher education institutions, companies that serve the higher education technology market, and other education-related organizations. It integrates foresight into its data gathering processes to empower its members with informed insights on the future of higher education. Join us on Wednesday, January 24 at 10am PST / 18:00 UTC when IFTF talks to three of their senior staff, Kathe Pelletier, Director, Teaching and Learning Program; Betsy Reinitz, Director, CIO and Senior Technology Leaders Program; and Jenay Robert, Senior Researcher. We’ll dive into EDUCAUSE’s foresight journey—how it started, how it’s transformed, where it’s going—, examine in detail their research panel process, and discuss their tool for turning foresight and insight into an action plan.

We’ll end the hour with a brief guided, interactive session where webinar participants can use Padlet, a tool EDUCAUSE uses to catalog signals of change.
