Description:

A seminar by John Moravec, Ph.D., Leapfrog Institutes

In an era of globalization and "flattening" of our relatiohships around the Earth, how can we learn better? What happened to learning as we moved from the stable structures of the 20th century to fluid and amorphic structures of the 21st century? What roles do schools and colleges play when you can learn in any context and at any time? Do we continue with formal learning or do we formalize informal learning?

This is an open invitation to explore some of the best ideas emerging around the planet that are contributing to a new ecology of learning.

John Moravec is a faculty member in the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development and the Innovation Studies Master of Liberal Studies graduate programs at the University. He is the co-founder of the Horizon Forum, a roundtable on the future of education at all levels, and is the editor of Education Futures.

This event is sponsored by the Thomas P. Jandris Center for Innovative Higher Education and the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development of the College of Education and Human Development.
