In this episode of For the Record, we talk to two people who “get it” when it comes to technology, Tom Black, University Registrar at Johns Hopkins University and Frank Blalark, University Registrar at Duke University. We’ll hear about the changes they’ve experienced over their careers and strategies and approaches they use to stay current with technology.
Tom Black, University Registrar at Johns Hopkins University
Frank Blalark, University Registrar at Duke University
Technology has changed and will continue to change the way we conduct our work in higher education; Interrogating different technologies is an important part of the work of the modern registrar; Reviewing offerings from vendors and developing relationships with companies (even those whom you don’t contract with) is a good way of finding out what’s available; Reading criticisms of higher education and creatively finding solutions with technology can drive progress.
