We’ll explore how technology can support a faster, more efficient, and more user-friendly applicant process, and can ease the communications burden for your team while keeping applicants informed.

The Future of Academia: A Case for Digitization that Academics Can’t Ignore

Sarah Renneker, Senior Product Manager, PeopleAdmin

Academics are typically the last population on campus to embrace new digital tools or a change in the way things are done. In this session, you will walk away with the tools to make a case for digitization that will get faculty, academic affairs, deans, and provosts excited. Just as society was once building an infrastructure of bricks and railways, but is now building a digital infrastructure of broadband and data networks, we’ll lay out how implementing digital systems on your campus will serve generations to come and build your institution’s legacy. In this vision for the future, HigherEd can easily break down silos and connect people through systems. We’ll also discuss change management in a real-world context, how to incorporate change with a project management rigor, and offer tips on justifying digitization work on campus.
