If the rapid growth of artificial intelligence (AI), the increasing need for state-of-the-art student, faculty and staff experiences, security, and the pending enrollment cliff in the US have you wondering how to make the best use of technology in your higher education institution, you’re not alone. I encourage you to check out our special podcast featuring Cisco education experts as they explore the key trends in campus technology that they’re seeing globally and in the USA.

We have a lot to digest – so grab your beverage of choice as you join host Danny Vicente for our latest “Coffee and Conversations” podcast. He’ll be joined by Cisco education experts Brad Saffer (Global Education Lead), Neal Tilley (US Cisco Business Development Manager for Education), and me as we dive into the latest trends we’re seeing among customers around the world. Plus, you’ll:

  • Learn how digital transformation supports the on-campus and off-campus experiences that students, staff and faculty expect — and how AI plays an important role in delivering these experiences.
  • Understand why sustainability and technology are top of mind for campuses as they look to reduce operational costs and their carbon footprint.
  • Explore why security technologies are becoming more focused on threat detection and response — versus prevention — and how these solutions need to integrate seamlessly into your tech stack.

In our latest Coffee and Conversations podcast, we dive into the latest tech trends to grow your understanding of digital transformation, sustainability, security, and more. Check out the video below:
