How can we revolutionize the university to better prepare students for our age of constant change? How can we retool our classrooms as activist, engaged learning environments that model a more just society? In this talk, Cathy N. Davidson will discuss her book The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux and show how we can revolutionize our universities to help students be leaders of change, not simply subject to it.
