Live Interview Thursday, January 19th - Henry J. Eyring on The Innovative University

Join me Thursday, January 19th, for a live and interactive webinar with Henry J. Eyring, co-author (with Clayton M. Christensen) of The Innovative University: Changing the DNA of Higher Education from the Inside Out. "The Innovative University illustrates how higher education can respond to the forces of disruptive innovation, and offers a nuanced and hopeful analysis of where the traditional university and its traditions have come from and how it needs to change for the future. Through an examination of Harvard and BYU-Idaho as well as other stories of innovation in higher education, Clayton Christensen and Henry Eyring decipher how universities can find innovative, less costly ways of performing their uniquely valuable functions."
