The University of Florida is hosting a symposium Wednesday, April 11, “Bricks and Mortar in a Digital Age.”
Keynote presenters and panels throughout the day will address questions such as:
*Are professors obsolete?
*Is higher education worth the cost?
*Is tenure still viable?
*Are MOOCs really a game-changer?
Keynote presenters include Jeff Selingo, columnist for the Chronicle of Higher Education at 9:00am (eastern daylight time) and Daphne Koller (via video link), co-founder of Coursera, at 1:30pm.
The event is being live streamed, and we are using Twitter hashtag #ufhighered to take comments and questions.
In addition, there is a set of online blogs with discussion focused on topics that are also timely and relevant:
*Is learning a game?
*Who is responsible for student success?
*Should tenured faculty get our of the way?)
Again, your perspective would be valuable.
