Event Details

Please join the GTA for an evening panel discussing Higher Education 2020: What Will Universities Become?

For 500 years, universities have dominated the intellectual landscape. And yet in a breathtakingly fast turn of events, the structure, authority and even the usefulness of universities in their current structure have come into question. Online learning and MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses), offering literally millions of students around the world access to university level courses and materials, are challengers. This panel, which includes leaders from some of the pivotal online learning organizations and Georgetown faculty, will talk about the emerging online models, their potential and challenges, and what the future holds for "universities" of all sorts.

Panelists:
David Edelstein, Chair of the School of Foreign Service Faculty, Georgetown University
Jonathan Katzman, Chief Product Officer, The Minerva Project
Bevin Philip, VP Operations, 2U
Clarissa Shen, VP Strategic Business and Marketing, Udacity

Moderator:
Betsy Corcoran, CEO, EdSurge, CAS '84
