Stanford’s Thoughts on the Future of Learning

Screen Shot 2015-10-19 at 10.09.14 PM

Stanford University held an event yesterday to share ideas about where teaching and learning are heading.

First in a series of events celebrating Stanford’s 125th anniversary, “Thinking Big About Learning” brings together Stanford professors and leaders talking about what they are doing and learning today in the humanities, computer science, medicine, education, behavioral science, neuroscience and more.

I watched the live broadcast and found that portions speak directly to our school’s strategic planning work on Next Generation Learning. I was also impressed at the similarities between trends in higher ed and secondary education. See below for a list of talks with time codes, so that you may jump directly to the desired presentation as you wish.
