The Book Industry Study Group (BISG) announced details for their annual conference "Making Information Pay for Higher Education," held at the Digital Book World Conference and Expo in New York City on January 13.
The conference will explore consumer attitudes, trends, and changes caused by digital disruption, as well as perspectives from industry leaders on issues in higher education. The program includes "Hacking Higher Education," a look at what content providers can learn from self-published solutions; a talk by Anant Agarwal, president of EdX; a discussion on current educational policy; and "Student Attitudes toward Higher Education: Portraits & Perspectives," a panel with four university students from different backgrounds.
“Now in its fourth year, MIP for Higher Ed is an established way for the entire higher education publishing ecosystem to hear thought leaders offer perspectives about trends and innovative approaches to a rapidly changing industry," said BISG executive director, Len Vlahos.
