Client Comments

“These days it seems as though you can’t mention “education” without also saying things like “change”, “technology” and “disruption” in the same breath. While pundits loudly but vaguely proclaim the death of traditional education models, those within the education system itself cast about for real answers to actual challenges and issues, as it pertains to [insert list of consulting specializations].

Keith Hampson is, in my view, one of the very few people who possesses such a useful blend of domain expertise, insight and pragmatism that those operating in the education market really should know and work with him. When we were in startup mode with our EdTech company, which focuses on digital distribution of learning materials, we relied heavily on Keith’s advisory services. I can’t recommend him enough: working with Keith made a real difference to us spanning such diverse subjects as strategy, branding and product.”

Ian Barker, CEO, Symtext

“If you are considering changes in your institutions’ approach to online learning and teaching Keith Hampson can bring an ideal set of experiences and perspectives to the table. Keith has been both a professor and researcher at Ryerson University and led the Distance Education team here. Keith’s leadership is one reason distance education at Ryerson has been so successful. His understanding of the economic and political realities in higher education is excellent and he brings a mature, thoughtful, and positive approach to every discussion. Keith’s presentation during Ryerson’s LMS consultation helped me reframe some of our discussions. Keith has a great understanding of how organisational issues can hinder or support instructional quality and a knack for distinguishing between hype and real trends in digital higher education.”

Brian Lesser, Director, Academic Technology, Ryerson University

“Keith’s an unmatched analyst and international authority on the intersection between higher education and digital technology.  He cuts through the fad and fear associated with this sphere to assist clients in understanding the most salient research and trends that will continue to shape the nature of higher education in the 21st century.  He is razor sharp and frank.   His consultation to the College Committee on Disability Issues in Ontario was invaluable; helping our members clearly identify the new terrain in which disability services now operates.”
