The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux

When: January 21, 2020, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Where: HE 819
Topic(s):

Presenter(s): Stefania Porcelli (Romance Languages) and James Cantres (AFPRL)


Please join ACERT for a 3-part Teaching Scholarship Circle (TSC) where we will read and discuss selections from Cathy N. Davidson’s book The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux. In her book, Davidson argues that university educators must substantially change how we teach in order to help our students succeed “in our age of precarious work and technological disruption.” Through our reading and discussion of her book, we will analyze her transformational vision for higher education in America, and draw lessons for how we support students at Hunter and how, in Davidson’s words, “we can educate students not only to survive but to thrive amid the challenges to come.”

The TSC will meet from 2-3:30 pm in HE 819 on the following days in January: Thursday, January 16th, Tuesday, January 21st, and Thursday January 23rd. Participants will receive a copy of the book from which we will pick different chapters to read for each meeting. Participants should plan to attend all 3 sessions, if possible. Snacks and coffee will be provided. Please feel free to reach out with questions or thoughts and to RSVP to acert@hunter.cuny.edu
