Benton Scholars: Online Education Symposium

By Peter Tschirhart on August 29, 2014

In the coming weeks, The Benton Scholars will present a series of lectures on the future of higher education. Fiona Hollands (Columbia University – Center for Benefit-Cost Studies of Education), George Siemens (University of Texas-Arlington – LINK Research Lab), and Marc Bousquet (Emory University – Assoc. Professor of English and author of How the University Works) will each address the capacity of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to re-shape the 21st-century university–and the implications for education policy, curriculum design, labor practices, and face-to-face relationships.

All lectures are free and open to the public, and most will be live-streamed or recorded for future reference. Please follow this blog for more information and direct questions to Peter Tschirhart, Asst. Dean for Undergraduate Scholars Programs, at ptschirhart@colgate.edu.
