Opening Keynote: Privacy and Security in the Age of Algorithmic Spies
Jennifer Golbeck Jennifer Golbeck, Director of the Social Intelligence Lab and Associate Professor in the College of Information Studies, University of Maryland, College Park

Security experts often claim that people are the most unreliable part of their systems and that privacy is dead. Jennifer Golbeck, an expert in cybersecurity and human-centered technology design, asserts that the problem is not people behaving insecurely, but security systems that are designed with no concern for their users. She’ll discuss the risks organizations face when humans are not the center of their security plans, present simple changes that can make systems more secure and easier to use, and describe how we can educate people about simple steps they can take to regain control over their digital lives.

Keynote: 2027: The Decade Ahead for Higher Education
Jennifer Golbeck Jeffrey Selingo, Author; Columnist, The Washington Post

Higher education is on the cusp of far-reaching changes over the next decade as technology plays a larger role, and as students, parents and educators ask what colleges should teach and how learning should be measured in an era of shifting needs in the economy. Drawing on research from his bestselling book, College (Un)Bound, and his follow-up report for The Chronicle of Higher Education, Jeffrey Selingo will discuss the attributes of a new era of higher education, demographic changes coming to campuses in the next decade, emerging learning pathways, and the roles of technology and the physical campus in the future directions of higher education.
