Where will disruption in higher education take us?
The pace of change of technology in the higher education space is placing new challenges on institutions to keep up with student expectation, but is also opening up new opportunities for growth.
As part of its Innovation Alley at EduTECH 2019 in Sydney this June, EduGrowth is hosting the Innovation Stage. A place for topics like these to be discussed in panel-style plenary sessions.
The Higher Education plenary sessions, sponsored by Navitas Ventures, will provide a forum for industry leaders to discuss, confront and dissect some of these challenges and opportunities.
Tim Praill, Head of Navitas Ventures & General Manager Strategy & Transformation, will kick off the higher ed sessions with his keynote address, ‘Where will disruption in higher education take us?’
Tim is a strategist with experience in corporate strategy and business transformation. He is a startup advisor on growth strategy, business model design and fundraising strategy. He is a board member of Volunteering WA and holds an MBA from the London Business School.
Complementing Tim is a series of panel discussions on the next phase of higher-ed innovation, how technology is transforming international education and the EdTech investment market.
These panels are made up of an impressive array of guests from the public and private sectors, making them essential viewing for EduTECH attendees.
