    Kaplan University and Techonomy

    Kaplan University is the official education partner of Techonomy, an invitation-only conference where world leaders in technology and business gather to discuss new and emerging technologies and their potential to drive positive change. This year Kaplan University continues its partnership with Techonomy as their official education partner with two events—Techonomy Detroit (September 17) and Techonomy Tucson (November 11–13).

  • Techonomy Detroit—September 17

    Techonomy Detroit brings together over 500 leaders from business, technology, government, and academia to better understand emerging trends for job seekers and career builders like you. This year the focus is on the national challenge of inadequate and inequitable education. How we can enhance learning for citizens at every stage of their lives in a time of constant and accelerating change? How can every U.S. city create a learning environment that nurtures job growth?

    You’re invited to hear answers to these questions and more when you join the live conference online with us on Tuesday, September 17, 2013. At Kaplan University, we are committed to the reinvention of education through innovation. This is why Kaplan University has been a major participant in Techonomy since its inception in 2010, and why we work hard to bring you the latest in emerging trends and topics like:

    • Education 2.0 for Americans 2.0
    • Keeping the U.S. Competitive in a Hyper-Connected World
    • Where Are the Jobs?
    • The 5 Undeniable Rules of Changing Human Behavior

    With speakers like Jack Dorsey of Twitter and Square, Quicken Loans Chairman Dan Gilbert, or Keith Ferrazzi of Ferrazzi Greenlight speaking about topics that directly affect you, you’re sure to leave with actionable insights to apply to your own life. There’s something of interest for everyone!

    Betty Vandenbosch, Kaplan University Provost, will be participating on a panel entitled “Education Reimagined” and discussing trends in higher education. During Techonomy Detroit, we announced our new Learning Recognition Course (LRC), an innovative open learning course that enables you to document experiential learning acquired outside of the classroom for college credit. For more information about Kaplan University’s open learning courses or to sign up for the LRC, visit openlearning.kaplan.com.
