All Brains on Deck:

Connecting Higher Education Leaders
for Emergent Action

What if the new normal of higher education didn’t have to be based on the old normal - a normal that may not have served learners, institutions, or society equally?

Every learner has a path that can produce successful experiences to continuously upskill or reskill.

There's no better time to re-envision the delivery of education as a series of lifelong educational accomplishments post high school. To do that effectively, we’ll need to collaborate across sectors, institutions, and the global landscape of lifelong learning to create our best next normal.

Join us in a free, lively, virtual engagement as we begin this journey of learning. We'll connect through a powerful process for emergent action to:

Uncover which values and practices are no longer relevant

Gain momentum in sharing significant insights from our collective wisdom

Co-develop a fresh vision of Higher Education for the benefit of all

Why Now?

The pandemic’s impact on higher ed cannot be fully measured yet. It’s clear, however, that today’s learning loss will become tomorrow’s earnings loss for many learners.

“More than 50% of the workforce is going to need to be re-skilled in the next three years.”

We need to resist the temptation to return to an old normal that wasn't working equally well for everyone. Sustainable progress nationwide and globally depend on bringing all minds on deck and joining forces across sectors and silos to co-create the new normal of lifelong learning by design.

- What to Expect -

Using a unique, technology-enabled collaborative meeting process, we'll leave silos behind; work together to identify emerging issues facing diverse stakeholders over the course of the next year; and call upon connections, correlations and cross-sector communication to maximize the value of lifelong learning post high school.

You’ll walk away with:

Clarity on the urgent challenges leaders in higher ed are prioritizing right now

A new network for taking critical action in the next 12 months

Fresh solutions that serve learners, institutions, and society

Your voice will be heard. You'll collaborate with colleagues from diverse institutions and sectors as well as peers, recognized thought leaders, association professionals, and government liaisons. We'll collaborate on some of the most pressing challenges your organization is facing for AY 2021-22 and beyond, connecting you with the people, process, and ideas that will reshape higher education.

Together, we’ll take a holistic approach to assessing the needs of today’s learners and designing a new future that is built upon collective wisdom that is inclusive of multiple stakeholder perspectives.
