We finally have the details of the 2016 NAFSA Tech MIG Meeting, due to take place during the NAFSA Annual Conference in Denver. The details of the meeting are:
- Wednesday, 1st June 2016
- 8:30am to 9:30am
- Hyatt Regency, Room “Mineral F”
Thanks to our sponsors Envisage International, Global Experiences, Terra Dotta, and sunapsis, we are planning to provide some breakfast fare during the meeting, so if you can indicate if you will be attending that would help us immensely in planning this for you. Please RSVP by Friday, May 27th.
This year, the format will be slightly different, as we wanted to make the meeting useful for the NAFSA Technology community. We have therefore asked Scott Jaschik, editor and one of the three founders of Inside Higher Ed, to speak to us about:
“The Digital Higher Ed World and International Students: A look at how technology is changing the way colleges attract, interact with and educate students — and the new global competition for the online international student.”
Scott has a wealth of experience in both the fields of technology and international education. He leads the editorial operations of Inside Higher Ed, overseeing news content, opinion pieces, career advice, blogs and other features. Scott is a leading voice on higher education issues, quoted regularly in publications nationwide, and publishing articles on colleges in publications such as The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Salon, and elsewhere. He has been a judge or screener for the National Magazine Awards, the Online Journalism Awards, the Folio Editorial Excellence Awards, and the Education Writers Association Awards. Scott served as a mentor in the community college fellowship program of the Hechinger Institute on Education and the Media, of Teachers College, Columbia University. He is a member of the board of the Education Writers Association. From 1999-2003, Scott was editor of The Chronicle of Higher Education. Scott grew up in Rochester, N.Y., and graduated from Cornell University in 1985. He lives in Washington.
We hope you will join us this year, and look forward to seeing you all!
