Innovations in Higher Education: New Thursday Blog Series

April 10, 2014 - 2 Comments

Most of us have seen the incredible progress and subsequent challenges in the arena of higher education, and there’s no doubt it’s been a big topic of discussion amongst the Cisco Education Team. So, we are excited to announce an upcoming blog series that will highlight some of the key trends, challenges and innovations we are seeing in higher education.

For the next few months, we will host a Thursday blog series focused on the changes in higher education. Starting next Thursday, our own Renee Patton will kick it off by highlighting many of the current trends and challenges. After that, stay tuned each Thursday as we feature blogs covering everything from research universities and online learning models to data sovereignty and analytics.

The real proof of innovation in higher education and technology is seeing them in action, of course. So, we will highlight our customers’ innovations and success stories as well as their perspectives into advancements in higher education.  The blog series will include a couple of guest bloggers and exciting insights.
