Education 3.0: Dr. Jeff Borden Keynote

Education:: Neuroscience + Learning Psychology + Education Technology = Education 3.0

In this keynote, Dr. Jeff Borden questions, how do we prepare students today for the kind of work, thinking, and problem solving that they will need in 2020? How do we prepare a workforce that will see more workers remote than at a specific location? How do we help our people, who will work more in teams than as individuals, who will work on more projects at a single time than ever before, and who will interface with technology which is changing at an ever increasing rate? How do we encourage learning for these skills when our schools are still focused on what was required in the industrial-age work of last century vs. the connected multi-tasking required today?

Ed Morrison Keynote

Collaboration:: Leadership through Strategic Doing

So you are a “getting it done” person. In working with multiple organizations, sometimes projects go well and sometimes they get bogged down…really bogged down. In today’s world collaboration is more crucial than ever, especially across regions. Welcome to Strategic Doing….a playbook tested by fire.

That’s a wrap: Education ~ Talent ~ Strategic Doing

What happens when you bring together thought leaders across sectors, and stir the pot? Here is the concluding segment from two days of provoking panels and keynote sessions.

Bright spots in education and the treasure hunt for talent meet Hillsborough County Commissioner Mark Sharpe. Keynote speaker Ed Morrison from Purdue Center for Regional Development joins in the mix. Whether you were able to make this Leadership Conference or not, join us as we work together to not just talk about what we could do, but to do what we can with what we have. Let this be for you, as it was for us, a time to say, “Remember when.”
