Event Description

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.

For a complete agenda, and to access the live stream and blogs, you are invited to visit and click on the banner that says "You are invited" and scroll down a little under Participation for the links you need.
