​Panels exploring the impact of new technologies such as data analytics and MOOCs on higher education will be a highlight of ACE’s 96th Annual Meeting: Seizing Opportunity, March 8-11, 2014, in San Diego.

ACE's Annual Meeting is the country's premier higher education event, bringing together nearly 2,000 higher education leaders to network with one another and hear from thought leaders and newsmakers discussing the most pressing issues of the day. Early bird registration for the meeting ends Dec. 13.

A March 11 plenary panel will explore how higher education institutions can employ data analytics in areas ranging from enrollment management to online learning. Speakers will include:

  • Candace Thille, founding director of the Open Learning Initiative and a senior research fellow at Stanford University (CA);
  • John Rome, deputy chief information officer at Arizona State University; and
  • Jeff Olson, vice president for data science at the College Board.

A session featuring findings from ACE’s Presidential Innovation Lab will be held March 9. The lab was launched earlier this year to examine new models inspired by the disruptive potential of new educational technologies such as massive open online courses (MOOCs) to boost the number of Americans earning a college degree.

Other technology-related panels will explore how MOOCs are evolving and how to address the generation of “digital natives.” Bestselling author Nicholas Carr will deliver remarks to presidents and chancellors during Presidents Day 2014 on March 9. Carr’s latest book is The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains.

Other confirmed speakers  include Mary Sue Coleman, president of the University of Michigan, who will deliver the Robert H. Atwell lecture at the opening plenary session Sunday, March 9; and Paula Kerger, president and CEO of PBS, who will give the keynote address at the ACE Women's Leadership Dinner Saturday, March 8.

A full list of a panels and presenters will be announced soon on the Annual Meeting website.
