In this episode, Casey Green describes the early days of technology and data in higher education. He reflects on how it changes the relationships between students and faculty.
Kenneth C. Green, Ph.D., is the founding director of The Campus Computing Project, the largest continuing study of the role of computing, eLearning, and information technology in American higher education. Launched in 1990, Campus Computing is widely cited by both campus officials and corporate executives as a definitive source for data, information, and insight about eLearning and information technology planning and policy issues affecting U.S. colleges and universities. Green also recently served as the director of the Digital Fellows Project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, (2017-2019), and as the moderator and co-producer of TO A DEGREE, the postsecondary success podcast of the Gates Foundation.
The author/co-author or editor of more than 20 books and published research reports and more than 100 articles and commentaries that have appeared in academic journals and professional publications Green is often quoted on higher education and information technology issues in The New York Times, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Education, and other print and broadcast media.
In October 2002 Green received the first EDUCAUSE Award for Leadership in Public Policy and Practice. The EDUCAUSE award cited his work in creating The Campus Computing Project and recognized his “prominence in the arena of national and international technology agendas, and the linking of higher education to those agendas.” And in February 2019, EdTech Digest cited Green among the “100 Top Influencers in EdTech”, stating that he is a “definitive resource for the higher education transformation conversation.”
