Building Student Success in the New Learning Environments
More than half a millennia ago, higher education was built around the notion that a student’s proximity to her/his teacher was essential to success. The concept of the residential college, where students and faculty lived in a single community that fostered intellectual and social growth, grew from the early universities at Oxford and Cambridge. They, in turn, took the concept from monasteries where people lived and worked in the same place.
Today’s digital and communications revolutions have created new opportunities to deliver education to a diverse student population around the globe—independent from time and place. What does this mean for student learning? What, then, is essential to an educational institution? How does this affect our idea of campus?
This one-day conference will focus on the range of strategies already being employed to redefine the future of higher education, the organizational frameworks that support student success and the facilities that foster a variety of institutional missions.
This session qualifies for 4.5 AIA continuing education credits.
