Thursday Live - Me on the Future of Education

Tomorrow, Thursday, September 6th, I'm the guest on the weekly webinar series, the topic being "The Future of Education"--a look at the social narrative of today's and tomorrow's education system, and asking what shifts in education will (and should) we see in the next 5, 10, 20 years?

I'm intrigued by the photo that was chosen for the interview (posted here). My goal is to talk about my observations of the education conversation after: conducting over 300 live and public interviews; consulting for for-profit, non-profit, and governmental organizations; and now having run several massively open online conferences (and you thought MOOC stood for something else? :)  I anticipate a terrific conversation, hopefully with some ideas and thoughts that are valuable.

  1. Great Post. Very informative and interesting.

  2. Hmmm, is it available on podcast or still viewable on the site? I'd like to see what your thoughts are on education in the next few years or so. I've been seeing a lot of debate on the topic (mainly about our country's education woes though); i'd like to see how this post stands as far as that issue is concerned.

  3. Michael--the link in the post takes you to the recording.
