Opening Session with Lunch and Keynote | Digital Storytelling for Higher Education
Presenter: Voltaire Santos Miran, Executive Vice President of Web Strategy at Carnegie
Location: Grand Ballroom ABCDE

See Volt's presentation slide deck in the Member Portal Annual Conference folder.

Storytelling plays a significant role in helping institutions of higher education to reveal and build their brand. As we recruit students or faculty, nurture relationships with alumni and donors, and raise awareness and esteem in the community and among our peers, we tell our stories in order to educate, inspire, engage, and move people to action. In this session, we’ll focus on the essential elements of on-brand digital storytelling and how you can help build a compelling narrative.

Topics included:

  • Essential components and elements of a great story
  • Six stages of a digital story’s life
  • Principles for using storytelling to build your brand
  • Audience-specific storytelling guidance
  • Design and accessibility
  • Measurement considerations
  • Techniques for becoming a masterful storyteller

Luncheon Keynote | Post-Pandemic Learner-Centered Professional and Continuing Education
Presenter: Jim Fong, Chief Research Officer at the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA)
Location: Grand Ballroom ABCDE

See Jim Fong's presentation slide deck in the Member Portal Annual Conference folder.

As we surface from the pandemic, higher education has and will continue to dramatically change as unfavorably demographics come into play and increased competition emerges for online education.  The power to define educational credentials is no longer concentrated within the academy but is shared with Millennial decision-makers and the crowdsourcing influence of future students.  This post-pandemic adult learner is complicated; independent, but tribal; and surprisingly powerful yet colleges and universities force them into a legacy model of higher education. 

This session will identify factors changing higher education, as well as identify opportunities for growth.  However, for institutions to leverage these opportunities, major change and the re-designing systems and processes to be learner-centered are needed. New research on post-pandemic adult learner profiles will be presented at this session.
