Learning the Future Together - Sponsored by D2L, Gold Partner

Session Type: Professional Development
In this talk, noted educational and technology visionary Cathy N. Davidson will address the new modes of cognition, learning, and teaching that are transforming contemporary higher education. After returning to the Industrial Age origins of the modern university, she proposes new principles and working models for a reimagined university designed to empower today's learners. What tools, methods, and partners do we need to help us learn at the pace of change? Recently named director of the exciting new Futures Initiative at the Graduate Center, CUNY, the nation's largest public urban university, Davidson offers us a passionate manifesto on behalf of equity and innovation in higher education, society, and the 21st-century workplace.
