Higher Education’s Symbiotic Relationship with EdTech: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly | UBTech Conference

Higher Education’s Symbiotic Relationship with EdTech: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Given the harsh realities facing universities and colleges today, can campus technology help and hurt institutions struggling to maintain enrolment and tuition revenue goals? EdTech realities are no longer an issue just for IT leaders, but for senior most academia leaders. The right tools, adopted properly can help attract and retain students by providing an immersive and rewarding academic experience. But without leadership and change management to address curriculum and instructional changes, the overall student experience, and even a fresh perspective at security, institutions risk ongoing declining results with the status quo or irreparable harm to their reputation by falling victim to possibly avoidable security breaches. During this session, led by HP educational experts, we will examine:

The Good – innovative technologies helping to improve the learning and management experience for students, faculty and administration alike

The Bad – despite technology purchases, why many institutions rarely see a return on their EdTech investments

The Ugly – many of the easiest gaps leading to security breaches on college campuses often go overlooked by even some of the most experienced security professionals

This session is being conducted by HP, a UBTech exhibitor.
