Join Us for ‘EdSurge Live,’ A Video Town Hall Series (Starting With a Look at AI in Higher Ed)

What if there was a talk show about edtech? We thought we’d try one, so next month we’re launching EdSurge Live, an experimental way to gather readers and experts via video chat to talk about key issues facing those exploring the future of higher education.

For our kick-off episode, we’re tackling the question: Who Controls AI in Higher Ed? (And Why It Matters)

The hour-long forum takes place on Thur, Nov 2 at 3:30 pm ET/12:30 PT, using the Shindig video platform. Anyone can tune in from a laptop with a webcam or your smartphone (you can turn the video off if you’re shy). We’ll have a couple of guests, including Candace Thille, assistant professor of education at Stanford University's Graduate School of Education, and Mark Milliron, co-founder & chief learning officer at Civitas Learning, to get the conversation started. But we’ll leave time for participants to voice questions, ideas or concerns as well. We’ll be streaming live from the EDUCAUSE annual conference in Philadelphia.

Update: Watch, hear or read the discussion ... Part 1 and Part 2.

And we're gearing up for episode 2, which will focus on the rise of microcredentials and the future of the college degree. Among our guests will be Sean Gallagher, founder and executive director of Northeastern University’s Center for the Future of Higher Education and Talent Strategy. Join us on January 16 at 3:30 pm ET for the discussion. Sign up here (and you'll get a reminder as the date gets closer).
