The educated student
Thinking and Doing for the 21st Century
Friday, March 8
2 to 4 PM
What is important to a 21st century undergraduate education? What skills, ideas, and experiences should students expect to leave college with? Through a series of lightning talks, MIT faculty and students will explore the needs of the modern learner.
Vice Chancellor Ian Waitz will host and introduce the 2019 MacVicar Faculty Fellows. A panel discussion and reception will follow.
