Said@Duke: Cathy Davidson on Reforming Higher Education for a New Society

Part of the Said@Duke Series
Cathy Davidson: We need not an education about technology as a thing but about a technology that both empowers and disempowers.

Former Duke Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies Cathy N. Davidson discussed her new book, "The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux," on Oct. 11.  She was joined in conversation by Edward Balleisen, professor of history and public policy and current vice provost for interdisciplinary studies at Duke. Davidson is currently a Distinguished Professor and the founding director of the Futures Initiative at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York

The event was sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies, Office of the Provost, Bass Connections, Center for Instructional Technology, Social Science Research Institute, Duke University Libraries, Office of the Dean of Humanities, Forum for Scholars and Publics, and the Franklin Humanities Institute.
