Technologies are supercharging the student experience from AI and machine learning to 5G and quantum computing. The challenge for educators is to build a learning experience that is immersive, innovative and connected to the needs of the student in the way that they want to learn. This breakfast briefing will explore what it takes to build the next generation student experience.

Day 2 Morning Session
“Technology is not just a siloed activity concerning only the IT department; instead, it is the means to connect the entire enterprise and its various missions.”
Is your institution taking full advantage of technology to transform higher education? How do they help you deliver an innovative student experience?
Education is becoming more than a moment in life; it's a continuous journey of lifelong learning. The role of educators is evolving from supporting students in pursuit of a degree to guiding them on a path of personal growth and achievement.

“Enterprise-wide insights – from teaching and learning analytics to a campus-wide Internet of Things (IoT) initiative – are on the rise. A student-centric focus demands a personalized campus and learning experience.” - 2019 Trends in Higher Education
What if it was possible as Higher Education leaders to work together in ways that advance our very purpose as universities? Instead of projects getting lodged in inboxes, languishing in meeting rooms, and struggling to launch, what if they shaped us to become knowledge sharers, healthy debaters, and idea generators, breathing life into our original founding missions? This powerful talk makes a persuasive, compelling case for higher education to say yes to an emerging leadership toolset, declaring an urgently overdue mandate to embrace collaborative leadership, lest it lose its very life to the stranglehold of silos.
We all know that some of the most impactful learning experiences we have had start with meaningful conversations. That’s why we are building time into the programme where you will get to build your personal networks and plan time to think about your part in creating institution-wide change, the theme of this years’ Future Edtech. Grab a coffee, take a seat and say hello to the person next to you.

Day 2 Closing Sessions
The U.S. is a world leader in software. In the last 20 years, Asia Pacific has become the hardware epicentre of the globe. Where then does Europe stand in this digital landscape, as it looks to the east and the west? What will it take for Europe to enjoy a renaissance of growth and opportunity, charting a middle way between late-stage American hyper capitalism and Chinese digital command-and-control? Fail to reignite Europe’s creative genius, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution will be a non-European event. This presentation builds out from a study Europe—Digital Superpower? Or Second-rate Peripheral Player? And the following post on LinkedIn. It is also related to our broader research about the Future of Learning: Relearning how we learn from the campus to the workplace.
Can Universities turn this challenge into an opportunity? Internet of Things timetabling innovations, scaling cohorts though artificial intelligence, and unbundled degrees explored in this session.
