Taylor Kendal is an educator, designer, improviser, community developer, and techno-philosopher. His work with the U.S. Dept. of Education, Library of Congress, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the University of Colorado has led him to a lifelong love for education, innovation, design, and the cultivation of future-focused networks. He holds an MA in Information Learning Technologies from CU Denver and has 20 years of experience in project/event management, leadership development, digital/social strategy, instructional/UX design, culture-crafting, improvising, and systems-level hacking of post-secondary education.
Taylor is currently focused on digital ethics, bridging cultures of entrepreneurship and education, infusing agility and intellectual honesty into bureaucracy, providing organizational solutions and leadership, learning from/traveling to distant lands (virtually and physically), exploring the future of education on the blockchain, and occasionally writing to help make sense of it all.
