Brenda Hampel Part of Panel Discussion at Digital Universities US 2024


Connect the Dots Managing Director, Brenda Hampel, has been invited to participate in the 2024 US Digital Universities conference hosted in collaboration with Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri in May.

Digital Universities US was introduced in 2021 as part of our Digital Universities series. These agenda-setting events have enabled us to build a growing global community of thought leaders working at the intersection of academic innovation and technology.

Co-created in partnership with Inside Higher Ed, sessions at Digital Universities US are curated by our editorial team – which includes Doug Lederman, co-founder, and Colleen Flaherty, senior editor at Inside Higher Ed – to ensure we cover the latest topics in digital transformation within higher education.

Our team-connect Survey Process


We start with thoughtfully diagnosing the team’s current culture by using available data, assessments and interviews.

This provides the team leader with a clear view of what is getting in the way of the team’s success.

We design a series of structured team sessions that:

  • Share the team culture analysis
  • Give team members the opportunity to talk through both processes and behaviors that need to be addressed
  • Productively provide feedback to one another
  • Develop both team and individual commitments that will lead to the team’s desired state


Measure progress by leveraging CTD’s team-connect Survey to:

  • Drive accountability and measure progress by collecting team feedback specific to one another’s engagement and behavioral change
  • Provide the team’s leader with a clear understanding of what he/she and the team need from each other to enable and support the team’s success
  • Share team and individual survey result reports
