252: Design & Development in Higher Ed - with Terence Sawtell, Founder, Goat

Welcome back to America’s leading higher education podcast!  In this episode of The EdUp Experience, sponsored by the Black History and Culture Academy, we welcome Terence Sawtell, Founder, GOAT.  

Terence talks with Liz and guest host Ashanti Martin about design and development in higher education.  Website user experience, aka student experience, is critical to move students through an application and enrollment process.  Hear what Terence thinks is critical to ensure that students have an experience that doesn't deter them from attending your school! Terence hails from Prince George, British Columbia and will never shy away from telling you how awesome his hometown is. 

He personifies what living in the north is like. He plays Hockey, loves very basic beer and spends much of his spare time working on old cars and "living the dream". Before Goatsocial, Terence spent 6+ years at TELUS honing his craft and learning how to be a leader. He worked up from the call centre to a management role within 2 years, and never looked back. 

Goat (formerly Goatsocial) was founded when a poor experience getting quotes for a website led to Terence re-learning how to build websites after many years dormant. He built his first website in 2004.
