On Thursday, Nov. 14, CSU Global will host a virtual conference on the future of online higher education. The nontraditional student referred to in the title represents the fast-growing population of learners that fall outside the traditional student profile -- those between 18 and 24 years old, attending college or university on a full-time schedule, and likely living on or near campus. According to the Wall Street Journal, as of 2013, only 29 percent of enrolled students fell into this category. The remainder, 69 percent, fall into the nontraditional segment, Data shows that nontraditional students range in age between late teens and 65 years of age. This new majority faces multiple career changes over a lifetime, and often juggles competing priorities such as job, family, and school.
The conference will also address the rapid evolution of higher education, meeting the needs of modern students and employers, and topics such as; enhancing student success through data use, increasing student/faculty engagement and dialogue, and the future impact of demographics on higher education.
Speakers will include American Council on Education President Ted Mitchell, Microsoft Director of Modern Learning Mark Protus, Colorado Department of Education Executive Director Kim Hunter Reed, Ph.D., and CSU Global President and CEO Becky Takeda-Tinker, Ph.D.
