- September 27, 2011 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
- Global Learning Center
Join Jonathan Cole (former Columbia University provost and author of The Great American University) and a panel of educational innovators for the launch of The Center for 21st Century Universities (C21U). Learn how you can participate in C21U, Georgia Tech's living laboratory for fundamental change in higher education.
C21U Director Rich DeMillo, current Distinguished Professor and former dean of the Georgia Tech College of Computing, is the author of Abelard to Apple: The Fate of American Colleges and Universities (MIT Press, August 2011). He's said that, as one of the top engineering and technological universities in the world, Georgia Tech has an opportunity to lead in an examination of how disruptive forces--most, but not all, related to technology--will change education. The College of Computing's undergraduate computer science curriculum, Threads, as well as Georgia Tech's state-of-the-art G. Wayne Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons (due to open Fall 2011), are just two examples of the Institute's incorporation of cultural and technological trends into its academic mission and curricula.
This event is a chance for faculty, students, staff and anyone with an interest in higher education to hear a steller cast of leaders from industry and academia share their ideas about the future of higher education and the disruptions in store for American universities.
