Alternative Educational Pathways: The future of education in adult learning

The world is changing rapidly and technology has become ubiquitous to our everyday lives. Higher education and adult learning are changing too. Experiments in project-based learning, design thinking, hybrid pedagogy, and educational communities are already underway – but where will they lead us? And what does this mean for the future of adult learning and higher education?

Join us at our next meetup to dive into these topics! Hear from a variety of perspectives about what this changing landscape of education looks like locally and elsewhere. Sharing their perspectives are:

• Douglas Tsoi, Portland Underground Grad School

• Susan Adams, Oregon Health and Sciences University

• Dave McFarland, Treehouse

Beth Schechter will moderate the panel and discussion.
