Welcome back to America’s leading higher education podcast! This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #69. In this episode, sponsored by Element451, we welcome Dr. Michael Torrence, President, Motlow State Community College!
Michael covers a range of topics in this episode as he and Joe discussed what's happening in higher ed. At Motlow State Community College, Michael talks about how they turned fact-to-fact content into quality online content - and are not iterating to the next level using AI and VR. Additionally, he talks about the robotics and training center at Motlow State - where he notes that institutional responsibility is to provide students with the skill they need to work. He highlights Motlow's use of open educational resources and workforce development groups as alternatives to the traditional model. Also, hear what "marginalized" student means to Michael - and it may not be what you think.
