A Sneak Peek at InsightsEDU: Speakers, Sessions and Highlights

What to Expect at the InsightsEDU Conference 2022

Will we see you at InsightsEDU 2022? It’s one of the few higher education conferences focusing exclusively on adult learners and non-traditional education programs. This means it’s a can’t miss event for anyone who wants to improve student recruitment and increase engagement. We’re not just reflecting on the past, we’re looking forward to a student-centered future. 

We’ve brought together amazing speakers and valuable content focused on helping schools better understand the higher education landscape now and into the future. With speakers and panelists including leaders in online and non-traditional higher education as well as experts from Google, LinkedIn, and higher ed service providers, it’s not just a place to learn, it’s an opportunity to network. 

Thriving in an Age of Disruption

The InsightsEDU agenda includes an insightful panel of experts talking about Thriving in an Age of Disruption. Dr. Melik Khoury of Unity College, Roger Lee of General Assembly, and Melissa Lubin of James Madison University join a panel hosted by Terry Rawls of Strategic Transitions Group. They’ll share what they’ve learned about helping students find new and quicker ways to gain the knowledge they need and enter the workforce.

In Lift and Shift: The University Model in the Age of Acceleration, Dr. John Boekenoogen and Dr. Dean Goon of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will lead you in developing a field guide for reimagining and reinventing the university model. Learn how to find valuable ideas in unrelated fields, lift them out of that context, and shift them into the university model.

These conference sessions are just a few of the ways we’re exploring the future of higher education for non-traditional students. Throughout the InsightsEDU conference, our expert speakers will share what they’ve learned over the last two years and dig into what can make your school better prepared to move forward. This isn’t a conference about surviving the current upheaval. It’s about thriving as we move into the future of education.

This holistic approach maximizes performance to grow your brand awareness and increase enrollment. 

InsightsEDU 2022: In Person and Online

We hope you’ll join us at the Hilton Denver City Center in Denver, Colorado Feb 23-25, 2022. We’re taking special care to keep everyone at this event healthy and safe. Recent history has taught us that there’s something special about in-person networking and conversations. If you can be there, we’d love to see you.

We understand that some people won’t be able to come to Denver and some people have come to prefer the convenience and flexibility of virtual conferences. That’s why we’re offering a virtual option this year. All general sessions will be live-streamed, as will select concurrent sessions. The remaining sessions will stream as scheduled and be available on demand.

Attend on your own, or bring your whole team. We can’t wait to see you – in Denver or Online. Register now to save your seat at InsightsEDU 2022.
