|Designing the Future of Liberal Arts
The traditional model of liberal arts education is challenged by rising costs, student and parent concerns about career preparedness, and digital means of sharing knowledge. How can we continue to develop the most important pedagogical, moral and social elements of the liberal arts while addressing access, relevance and new modes of learning? In this talk, Carey Sargent, associate director of instruction and research for Oxy’s Center for Digital Liberal Arts, will share ideas from her first-year students who designed “experimental colleges” as a class project and will ask you, the audience, to draft some ideas of your own. SOLD OUT!
| 3 p.m. – 4 p.m.
