Presentation Panel

We Don’t Need No Classroom - Towards a New Role for Universities and Teachers

Date Friday, Nov 25  Time   –    Room Potsdam I

In an era where so much learning is happening via informal digital channels, “the class” and “the teacher” are becoming anachronistic concepts. Students are increasingly learning in their own way, driven by their own internal motivation, and tracking their own learning process. In this new reality, what role is left for the “providers of classes” (universities) and the “gate keepers to content” (teachers)? Come to this panel and expect conversation and discussion, while adding your own thoughts to the mix.
