“Others have opinions & epiphanies; I try to bring data to the discussion…”
-Kenneth C. Green, Ph.D., Founding Director, The Campus Computing Project
We are so excited to have the very funny, very knowledgeable Kenneth C. Green, Ph.D., as one of our keynote speakers at The Saylor Foundation Digital Education Conference in April. Dr. Green is the Founding Director of The Campus Computing Project, which is the largest ongoing study of the role of technology in higher education. In addition to consulting with higher ed presidents, provosts and administrators on their technology needs and programs, Green serves as the senior research consultant at Inside Higher Ed and directs the publication’s national survey of higher ed officials. Green also blogs and tweets as Digital Tweed and @DigTweed, respectively.
Dr. Green and his work have been featured in numerous publications including The Washington Post, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Ed, and The Wall Street Journal. He received the first EDUCAUSE Award for Leadership in Public Policy and Practice in 2002 for creating The Campus Computing Project. Dr. Green’s most recent paper on MOOCs is available here.
We conducted an email interview with Dr. Green to get a sneak peek of what to expect at the conference. Below you can find out about his career and hopes for higher education:
