2017 UPCEA Online Leadership Roundtable

The Forum for Chief Online Leadership Officers
Sponsored by Blackboard

June 14, 2017
9AM to 12PM
Hilton Bayfront San Diego
San Diego, CA

Join Jeff Selingo, Bridget Burns, Entangled Solutions, and other chief online learning officers (COLOs) for the 2017 Online Leadership Roundtable on June 14, 2017. The morning will be filled with compelling conversations on innovation and collaboration relevant to the online enterprise in higher education.

Participants will then have the opportunity to engage in Entangled Solution's proprietary Future State Design (FSD) process.  FSD bridges the gap between visioning and strategic planning. It enables leaders to imagine the futures they wish to build and develop action plans to make those futures possible.

Collectively, through peer-to-peer networking, small group dialogue, and large group reporting-out, attendees will gain new skills and have tangible take-aways they can begin implementing upon their return home!
