David E. Goldberg

David E. Goldberg is a speaker, author, strategist, trainer, and coach for transforming higher education. Toward the end of a 27-year distinguished academic career in which Dave achieved renown for his path-breaking work on artificial intelligence, he founded the iFoundry incubator for educational change at the University of Illinois. iFoundry’s success in unleashing students was so startling, that in 2010, Dave resigned his tenure and a distinguished professorship to start ThreeJoy Associates, a change consulting, training and coaching firm for transforming higher education. Work at Illinois, Olin College, NUS (Singapore), UFMG (Brazil), and other innovators led to the development of the SmoothChange method for transforming higher education, featuring rapid innovation and respect for faculty governance.

In 2012, Dave founded Big Beacon as a non-profit organization for transforming higher education. Today, Big Beacon gathers students, innovators, and employers together to learn from each other and to advocate for transforming higher education. In 2014, he co-authored the groundbreaking book, “A Whole New Engineer: The Coming Revolution in Engineering Education,” available in hardcover and major e-book formats.

Dave maintains an active correspondence with many of the world’s top thought leaders in educational and organizational change. He is constantly on the lookout for new ideas, thinkers, and practices that lead to success in transforming higher education.
