Zoom Meeting

Surprisingly, our colleges and universities, especially the enormous institutions that have grown up over the last fifty years, were not designed to be places of deep learning. Their “deep architecture,” and the cultures they fostered have valued many other competing interests – growth, reputation, brand, enrollment, stewardship, etc. – but generally, not student learning and success.

Is it possible to reshape the culture and the deep architecture around these values, in spite of their underlying business models, labor models, politics, and competing interests?

This conversation will visit the origins of our existing cultures and examples of how culture can be reshaped around a vision of quantum improvements in student outcomes.

This webinar is one in a series presented by Catalyst @ Penn GSE featuring winners of the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize for Education. Together, Catalyst and the McGraw Prize are advancing innovation in education through a growing array of programming.
