Panel Discussion: "What is an Open Campus? Beyond the Ivory Tower"

Panel Discussion: "What is an Open Campus? Beyond the Ivory Tower"

University Center
General Public,  
Prospective Students 

We live in an age of near-constant disruption. Innovations in various industries push the creative envelope and advance the social good by offering radically new ways of approaching accepted industry practices. But can such disruption happen within the "ivory tower"? How do we look beyond the traditional campus to find new ways of reaching and best serving today's broader audiences? What can traditional education providers learn from non-accredited academic institutions to help reimagine the learning landscape?

Join thinkers at the vanguard of discourse - and practice - of education’s rapidly shifting frontier. Panelists will explore innovations in learning modalities, discuss advances in education access, and share insights from The New School's own work to transform the education experience for learners from a diverse range of backgrounds and interests.
