Does your institution know how students and faculty are experiencing the EdTech transformation in higher ed? Diving deep into the data from three surveys of 2,500 students and faculty, this panel will share new insights about the EdTech learning experience, including the digital divide, EdTech needs of faculty, and systems-level barriers to adoption in the classroom.

This discussion will offer attendees a new paradigm for balancing learner and financial impact, offering tangible examples from leading EdTech companies of how identifying equity blind spots has allowed them to be better and more desirable partners to higher education institutions.

Many EdTech founders think there’s a disconnect between supporting student equity and profit—we disagree. This session will feature leaders from leading EdTech funds and two of the nation’s most innovative colleges and universities to discuss impact as a business strategy and what they’re looking for when meeting prospective EdTech partners.
