The Digital University and the Future of Higher Education
Wednesday August 28th, 2013
Annual Meeting of the American Political Science Association (APSA)
During the past decades the introduction of digital technologies has impacted every aspect of higher education. From libraries, to student services, to the creation of the electronic classroom, traditional universities have been challenged to rethink their mission and purpose. This workshop looks at the effects of the digital revolution on higher education and make recommendations about how colleges can cope with these changes.
Dr. McCluskey and Ms. Winter discuss their book The Idea of the Digital University: Ancient Traditions, Disruptive Technologies and the Battle for the Soul of Higher Education. All those attending receive a free copy. Click here for more information on this book.
