The edtech adoption cycle is at a fever pitch with millions of students in digital learning spaces. Meanwhile the cost of higher education is on the rise. And there is a global shortage of technical professionals available to fill open positions and deliver on the promise technology holds for bettering our world. So can edtech close the talent gap, reduce higher-ed costs and democratize education? This fireside chat will examine these issues and consider the possibilities of hybrid education: individualized paths for lifelong learners that merges online with offline. Join two hybrid educators in a discussion of what’s working, what’s not and what’s possible in the future of higher education.
