KEYNOTE: Are you as relevant to your students as Google?

We're excited that Marco Gianotten will be presenting the keynote at our event with KPN, about digital transformation in higher education. Marco is the founder of research agency Giarte, an influential public speaker and author of various books, including Digital Empathy: When Tech Meets Touch.

The business model of universities is roughly 1000 years old: universitas magistrorum et scholarium. The problem that 'communities of masters and scholars' solved the scarce access to knowledge. Information is now abundant: digitally accessible to almost everyone. The original business model for higher education is therefore waning. In the United States, this leads to the prediction that in 10 years, half of all universities and colleges will be bankrupt.

Higher education in the Netherlands is different, but here too the business model is shifting. Digitization of the knowledge economy not only changes the business model of higher education, but also the way IT is used on and around the campus. How can IT organizations respond to the needs of their end-users and make the right choices for a future-ready IT infrastructure?

Set the ambition bar high: become as relevant to your students and teachers as Google.
