Visionary Leadership and Continuing Higher Ed: Formative Trends in the Era of Digital Credentials 

Join us for this session on October 3 from Noon until 1:00 ET as we explore trends in the higher education credentialing landscape.  From understanding the range of credentials and educational experiences currently available in the market to evaluating the emerging alternatives to traditional degree credentials, we will seek to understand how these fit into the current needs of the workforce and identify ways we can continue to drive innovation in higher education.

Sean Gallagher, Ed.D., is founder and Executive Director of Northeastern University’s Center for the Future of Higher Education and Talent Strategy, and Executive Professor of Educational Policy. Gallagher joined Northeastern in 2009 and is a nationally recognized expert with more than 15 years of experience in higher education. As Chief Strategy Officer for Northeastern’s Professional Advancement Network, Gallagher built a central strategy function unique among universities – working across colleges and academic domains to launch growth initiatives including the development of new campuses and degree programs. Prior to Northeastern, Gallagher worked for nearly 10 years at Eduventures, advising executives at hundreds of universities, education companies, and investors. Gallagher directed the firm's largest and most profitable business unit, and played an instrumental role in the company’s growth by developing and leading many of its research practices.

Gallagher is a frequent invited speaker at conferences and events, and his writing and commentary have been featured in leading media outlets such as The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and CBS Television. Sean's research has been cited in numerous academic papers and books. His book, "The Future of University Credentials: New Developments at the Intersection of Higher Education and Hiring," was published in 2016 by Harvard Education Press.
