education's digital future

learning and the life course

Tuesday, April 15, 2014, 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm
CERAS Learning Hall (CERAS 101), 520 Galvez Mall, Lobby Level

The life course is changing. The extension of adolescence, lengthening lifespans, and the ever growing demands of paid work and parenting are obliging Americans to rethink every phase of adulthood. At the same time digital media are making it possible to radically reorganize how learning fits into the rhythms of adult lives. This forum assembles innovative thinkers in a wide range of fields to help us imagine bold recombinations of learning and the life course.
