Disrupting College webinar today 11 am MT #educause #yam

Reminder to Tune In

As a reminder, you're invited to join your colleagues and Next Generation Learning Challenges today for "Disrupting College: How Disruptive Innovation Can Deliver Quality and Affordability to Postsecondary Education," a free web seminar as part of the NGLC "Summer Learning Series."

Topic: Disrupting College: How Disruptive Innovation Can Deliver Quality and Affordability to Postsecondary Education
Speaker: Louis Soares, Director, Postsecondary Education Program, Center for American Progress
Date: Tuesday, June 28, 2011
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET (12:00 p.m. CT, 11:00 a.m. MT, 10:00 a.m. PT)

In today's web seminar, Soares will share key insights and observations from a recent report co-authored by Clayton Christensen, Michael Horn, and Louis Caldera that examines higher education through a lens of disruptive innovation. Rather than offering answers, Soares will challenge participants to consider new strategies for an educational system focused on success.
