“Crisis always shapes new leaders. Kids today are being exposed to one of the greatest global crises of our time, and it will shape what’s important to them, and who they become. The sooner we can create safe learning environments, the sooner we can continue the critical work of creating the next generation of leaders.”

-Trevor Noah

Higher Ed Summit Virtual is moving to June 16

In support of communities advancing racial equality and honoring those who have lost their lives to injustice, we have postponed our June 9th Virtual Higher Education Summit to June 16th. The timing will still be 8am PDT – 12pm PDT. If you already registered you will use the same login on the new date.
In the midst of one of the most transformative shifts in education history, we’re committed to bringing our community together online for Higher Ed Summit Virtual, a global event. It will be our first time convening virtually to tackle this new era of digital transformation, innovation, and insights. We are proud to co-host this year’s summit with Indiana University, a long-time industry leader in higher education. Join us as we explore the ways that institutions are accelerating transformation in the new digital landscape.

Our Hosts, Leah McGowen and Jim Stroka, at last year’s Summit Awards.

Celebrate Innovation in Education was founded on the belief that technology is most impactful when it’s used for doing good. We are excited to recognize trailblazers in the education community who are driving that philosophy through the Summit Awards. Winners will be announced at Higher Ed Summit 2020. Learn more about the awards by checking out the list of last year’s recipients.

The Power of Community

When we use terms like “changemaker” and “Trailblazer”, we don’t say it lightly — we absolutely mean it. Education is the foundation on which the future rests, and no one lives and breathes that ethos more than our education community. As the ones shaping the future, this yearly gathering is a celebration of a singularly-focused community of innovators.
