014: Bryan Alexander - The Futurist Leading Higher Education into the Great Unknown

The Way of the Futurist

Oct 30 2019 • 57 mins

What’s up everybody? Today I’m joined by an internationally known futurist. Bryan Alexander is a researcher, writer, speaker, consultant, and teacher working in the field of how technology transforms education. He’s spent nearly 20 years working with hundreds of colleges and universities, helping them understand the impact emerging technologies will have on their schools and how they can leverage these technologies to build sustainable models of the future. We touch on a number of topics I’m sure you’ll find interesting, but here’s a little teaser; we talked about his futurist book club, surveillance capitalism and what comes next as well as VR as a platform for digital storytelling and of course I asked Bryan about the future of higher education. Bryan is one of a kind and it was an honor having him on the show. Before we get into the interview, I want to plug Bryan’s new book, Academia Next: The Futures of Higher Education. It hits bookshelves in January 2020, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon.com.
