The best way to keep up to date as a CLO is to surround yourself with people in the industry.
You can participate in various conferences in order to accomplish this. "The Economist" is holding its Higher Education Forum in New York City this September. The forum is designed for senior leaders in academia, policy, and high-level corporate executives interested in outlining the path from education to employment in this increasingly globalized and technical world.
The event focuses on what lies ahead for education, the relations between private companies and academia, and how higher education institutions can better prepare the next generation of students for the workforce.
You can also attend the Chief Learning Officer Symposium taking place later this fall in California. The symposium will focus on learning leaders experiments and applying new approaches while modernizing traditional models to keep up with the demand of today’s workforce.
