Event Overview
What is higher education becoming? This workshop explores several slices of the future, as experts taking the audience on deep dives into fields with enormous impact on higher education. Industry and thought leaders take us into the future of the book, what's coming next in digital security threats, and possible futures for the world of work. An opening presentation sets the stage by introducing futures methods, trends, and projects. The closing session brings this all back to institutions by connecting these futures to the present of teaching, research, support, and student life. Discussion is encouraged throughout the day, augmented by a social media backchannel.

Session Outcomes:
How is the book changing?
- What new digital security threats are likely to arise, and which old ones persist?
- How will work change, both in terms of campus labor and the world our students will enter?
