In our rapidly changing technological landscape, the old model of higher educations looks increasingly outmoded. Reform efforts often focus on making the system more efficient in order to churn out ever great numbers of graduates.
We believe that universities should think critically about how to harness new technology to better develop their students not just as future workers, but as future citizens, problem–solvers, and leaders. The roundtables in this series tackled questions at the heart of the evolution of higher education: How can we build on insights about learning and invent new ways to deliver and measure education that matters for a lifetime? How can we use new tools and approaches to carry out the mission of educating the whole person?
We partnered with Georgetown University to bring together 50 top innovators in six virtual roundtables to envision a university system that could best educate the whole person – worker, citizen, authentic human being.
