ETOM Fall 2023 Conference

October 27 @ 8:30 am 3:30 pm

Schoolcraft College – Vistatech Center | 18600 Haggerty Road, Livonia MI 48152

Keynote Topic

Education 3.0: It’s Way More Than Just AI

Please join a former chief innovation officer, a man who has witnessed thousands of initiatives (most of which failed) across global higher education, an efficacy researcher and 25 year college professor to unpack what neo-millennial learning and assessment can and should be.  Discover some old procedures, embedded deeply in the educational DNA that need to go.  Discover how new tools like GPT-4 and proximal video can fundamentally shift us away from the Web 2.0 mantra of create-consume-remix-and share to a Web 3.0 framework for education that fosters a decentralized, open, and intelligent structure for students. From game changers based on cognitive science to best practices found in education psychology and support for it all through technology platforms and frameworks, attendees will have a better understanding of how to make tomorrow’s learning start happening today as we build Education 3.0.

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Borden is currently the Dean of the School of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University. On the heels of his position as Vice Provost at National University, Jeff has remained a Professor of Communication and Education, a Davis Scholar in Residence awarded by the Akilah Institute, and a speaker / consultant / leader across higher education.  As a former Chief Innovation Officer, Academic Research Director (“Think Tank”), and lifelong advocate for effective eLearning, Jeff has spoken to educators at every level, from professors to politicians to presidents to principals, in 38 countries and 49 of 50 U.S. states. 

A passionate teaching and learning expert, Dr. Borden is generating and communicating the best possible ideas, strategies, and philosophies to transform learning at scale.  Through award winning “learning ecosystem” creation, brain-based education strategies, large scale alternate reality games for education, and other creative endeavors, Dr. Borden has implemented effective learning techniques for thousands.  Having written academic anthology chapters, academic journal articles, editorials, blogs, and given interviews for dozens of academic and popular media, as well as having presented to more than 5,000 audiences in 20 years, Dr. Borden will provide practical, researched, intentional strategies for changing learning.
