Higher Education at Internet Scale  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

The Eli Broad College of Business is pleased to present an address by Dr. Adrian Sannier.

Dr. Sannier was named by The Chronicle of Higher Education as one of the "12 Tech Innovators Who Are Transforming Campuses" in 2012.

"Our educational system is under increasing pressure. At the very moment that economic and cultural forces are driving the need for people to develop new skills at an accelerating pace, the educational system seems to be losing ground... We need solutions at the next level of scale."

Dr. Sannier is an MSU Alum and nationally recognized leader in the use of technology in higher education and will deliver an engaging address on disruptive innovation in higher education. This event should be of great interest to all faculty and PhD students.

Adrian Sannier is the Chief Academic Technology Officer and Professor of Practice in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Engineering at Arizona State University. He is part of the ASU team building the Global Freshman Academy, an ambitious program of general education reform combining Big Data, social networking, and evidence based instruction to drive better student outcomes at scale.

Previously, Sannier, an MSU alum (BS '82 and PhD '88), served as CIO at ASU from 2005-2010. Sannier also served as the Stanley Professor for Interdisciplinary Engineering and the Associate Director of the Virtual Reality Applications Center at Iowa State University. Outside the academy, Sannier was Senior Vice President for Product at Pearson, where he helped forge the partnership between ASU and Pearson that created ASU Online.
