2020 Visions for the Future:

Enhanced Communication and Technology

Registration | Hotel | Keynote

Disruptive technology continues to trigger shifts in higher education as new technology creates the opportunity for leaders to reconsider standard practices and operational goals. As continuing educators dedicated to providing quality lifelong educational opportunities, the implementation of innovative technology is vital. But what technology is the best fit for your organizational needs?

The ACHE MidAtlantic planning committee invites leaders in continuing education to submit proposals for the 2020 Visions for the Future: Enhanced Communication and Technology conference. Prepare to discuss new trends and advancements in technology, including current systems and alternative new developments.  

ACHE MidAtlantic is a supportive and vibrant community of continuing educators working in a variety of positions, formats, and organizational types. We encourage sessions that promote active participation and applicable ideas from folks working in both credit and non-credit areas.

Topics areas to consider:

  • Disruptive Technology – What new technology is on the horizon for continuing educators? What experiments or other trial methods have you participated in with emerging technology— including successes and failures?  What specific software, CRM, or other technology has led to the finest results for your organization and target audience? Examples of how technology has helped your organization to streamline operations, improve efficiency, and or reduce cost. 
  • Buy-In – How do you obtain management buy-in for tech upgrades? Acquiring team buy-in to new technology is not always easy. What techniques do you harness to facilitate and maintain a culture of innovation? Areas can include staff training and professional development opportunities.
  • Missing Technology – With numerous new advancements in technology it may seem that all areas have been researched, tested, and specific technology marketed as the solution. What gaps in technology has your organization noticed? And what systems or best practices have you created to address these challenges? 
  • Communication – How are emerging technologies reshaping the idea of communication? How has technology altered the methods in which your organization communicates with stakeholders? Focus on the individual can be lost when utilizing technology for mass communication, in what ways do you use technology to individualize internal and external communication?   
  • Shopping Technology – Before you purchased your current workplace technology what advice or prior research did you wish you had known?
