Lecture/Reception with Antioch President Nancy Leffert (CANCELLED)

Antioch University invites Harvard alumni to a lecture entitled " Higher Education in 2016: A Whole New Ballgame".

Antioch University in Santa Barbara invites Harvard alumni to a reception and presentation on "Higher Education in 2016: A Whole New Ballgame", with Antioch President Nancy Leffert, PhD, on Monday, May 23, 5:30 p.m. at Antioch University, 602 Anacapa St (corner of Cota).  Parking is at Anacapa public lot, entrance on Cota or Ortega.

More on the lecture:
Higher education is in a state of great disruption. Between skyrocketing tuition fees and their   concomitant onerous student debt, massive online courses (MOOCS), competition from corporate universities, the lack of interest in liberal arts, and the rising currency of online “badges,” traditional  higher education must make a case for its relevancy in contemporary society.  Do we want teaching or training? What can we quantify about face-to-face teaching vs. distance learning? Will bricks and mortar colleges survive?
