The Summit will be held on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. in Washington D.C. and discussions will foster collaboration between technologists and practitioners and between higher education leaders and employers.  A series of keynotes, panels and workshops will include:

  • Keynote Speakers
  • Panel Discussions
    • The Changing Paradigm of Higher Education’s Role in Career Formation
