The End of Higher Education: A Discussion About Purpose
Futures Initiative Director Cathy Davidson discussed The End of Higher Education with Mike Wesch and Randy Bass as part of the Connected Courses Kick-off Live Event on September 15th.
As shrinking budgets, skeptical publics, and rising alternatives continue to threaten the end of higher education, we host this conversation as a contemplation of what the end – or purpose – of higher education should be. We will also reflect on how individual teachers might find their own core reason for teaching a specific class, and ways to build buy-in to that reason among students.
Check out Unit 1: Why We Need a Why and a video recording of the conversation.
