This session began by developing present-day trends likely to shape higher education's futures. They included trends from outside the academy that nonetheless impact universities, including forces from demographics, macroeconomics, culture, policy, and geopolitics. Technological change drivers receive particular attention, from 3d printing to digital video, artificial intelligence, and the rapidly changing device ecosystem. Then, trends within higher education are explored. These included changes in enrollment, finance, and equity. They also included the intersection of education with technology. Alexander concludes with scenarios for future universities.
