First eduWeb19 Keynote Speaker Announced

eduWeb19 Keynote Speaker Announced

It’s been weeks of big announcements for eduWeb Digital Summit 2019! We’ve announced workshops and our list of presentations, which, let’s be honest, look AMAZING (In our completely biased opinion, but go take a look, you’ll agree)!

But we have even bigger news! Eric Stoller, a higher education writer and consultant, will be one of our two keynote speakers for the summit this year. You might recognize his name from the bylines of Inside Higher Ed stories, as he’s been the Student Affairs and Technology blogger there for the past nine years.

Much Ado About Digital — Global Observations on Social Media

Engagement via digital channels is a readily proven method for recruitment, retention, and brand building. Yet why aren’t more institutions crushing it when it comes to all things digital? Perhaps the answer lies within organizational culture and leadership. For quite some time now, social media hasn’t been about the “shiny tools” or “the next big thing.” Join Eric as he shares globally proven techniques and tactics for creating impact, ideation, and next-level experimentation with social media.

About Eric: Eric Stoller is a higher education writer, consultant and speaker. He frequently gives keynotes and workshops on how social media can be used for strategic communications, learning, and engagement and uses his own digital presence to share resources and curate content.
He is a keen proponent for teaching students, staff, and faculty about digital identity development and is especially interested in the interplay between organizational culture and the adoption of new technologies for enhancing the student experience.

For the past 9 years he has been the Student Affairs and Technology blogger for Inside Higher Ed. Having lived in London for the past 5 years, Eric is making a move back to the US in April to continue his digital engagement consultancy.
