Undergraduate Studies Annual Future of Learning Lecture
After Learning: Education on a Hot Planet - Dr. Bennett Ramsey
Monday, February 11 at 7 p.m.
Dr. Bennett Ramsey, an associate professor of religious studies at UNCG and senior faculty fellow in the Warren Ashby Residential College, will be the featured speaker at the 2013 Undergraduate Studies Future of Learning Lecture at 7 p.m., Monday, Feb. 11.
The lecture, “After Learning: Education on a Hot Planet,” is open to civic, business and educational leaders as well as others in the Triad who are concerned with the role of higher education in responding to the significant changes in society and economics arising from forces such as global competition, environmental constraints and slower growth.
Ramsey will provide a critical analysis of the current culture of learning in American higher education and discuss ways in which that culture should be reimagined to provide students with the knowledge, skills and perspective necessary to meet today’s challenges.
The primary goal of the lecture is to broaden participation in a conversation about transforming higher education and, more specifically, the way students are prepared for productive, adaptive, resilient and meaningful lives in the emerging global and environmentally “hotter” future.
The free event will be held in the Elliott University Center auditorium and refreshments will follow. Free parking is available in UNCG’s Walker Parking Deck.
