The Next Generation Learning Challenges grant program of EDUCAUSE, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Hewlett Foundation and others, will bring four project leaders together to share models of innovation and new possibilities with technologies. Short presentations will be followed by audience interaction addressing the theme of innovations in higher education designed to improve recruitment, retention and increasing diversity in undergraduate and graduate programs.
