CSU to Host Virtual Education Conference

Orange Beach, Alabama – Columbia Southern University will be hosting the Education Beyond Tomorrow 2017 Virtual Conference on April 24-26. The event aims to inspire the imagination of educators to consider education beyond tomorrow, incite the pursuit of innovation in andragogy, pedagogy and practice, and envision learning-centered environments supported by technology.

“We are excited Columbia Southern University is able to provide a platform for educators to share and help shape their vision for the future of education,” said CSU Conference Manager, Peter Eggebraaten. “As technology continues to rapidly advance our educational institutions, it is essential for educators to continue looking forward as a means to propel the quality and effectiveness of our learning environments into the future.”

This year’s conference keynote will feature futurist, researcher, speaker and writer, Dr. Bryan Alexander. Dr. Alexander works directly in the fields of transformative technologies and education and has been published in The Atlantic Monthly and Inside Higher Ed, as well as been interviewed by the Chronicle of Higher Education, MSNBC, US News World Report, Pew Research, and more.

The three-day event will be broadcast online at no cost for attendees. Presentations will be given under one of three thematic strands intended to explore a different aspect affecting the future of education: cooltech— technologies that empower innovation, engagement, and the creation of communities of learners; andragogy— theory and best practices for faculty promoting learner efficacy through comprehensive assignments and authentic assessments and; beyond tomorrow — innovation in learning-centered environments that create unlimited learning in a defined space.
