Liberal Education Unbound: The Life of Signature Student Work in the Emerging Digital Learning Environment
January 22, 2015 § Leave a comment
This morning I am co-presenting at the 100th annual meeting of the Association of American Colleges and Universities. Here are our slides, and I include the session description, and some links to resources below:
The Next Generation of Liberal Education Reforms
How does the emerging digital environment shape the life cycle of students’ signature work in the 21st century? Digital technology has changed the learning ecosystem, and the future of liberal education depends upon an integrative vision of learning that is not merely advanced by digital tools, but reshaped in the same ways that digital learning has already fundamentally changed our culture. In this forum, we will explore what a synthesis of liberal education and connected learning can look like through the lens of signature work and the possibilities that the digital opens up at each stage of this work.
