Emory Event on Millennials (that’s you guys), Media, and LearningPosted: September 23, 2011
Jessica just let me know that Emory’s Halle Institute is hosting a two-day conference on October 20-21 titled “Re-Generation: Envisioning New Relations to Media, Civics, Work, and Learning.” Of particular interest for many of you—at least based on our discussions in class—would be the keynote on Friday. Here’s a preview:
A discussion of how disruptive technology might be used to revolutionize higher education. How do technological advances afford new possibilities to experiment with the very shape, structure, and content of the university? What are some of the diverse and possibly competing visions of higher education in the twenty-first century? What does generation mean in this context?
The conference is free, but you do need to register to attend. This would be a great event to take in.
