Higher education reforms, said President Obama in TIME's special issue on higher education, "are taking root and delivering results." Still the challenges facing students and educators today—especially around cost, access, and what defines a "successful" education for career readiness in today's global economy—are more pressing than ever. Thursday, November 29 from 3:30 to 4:30 (EST), Google's Enterprise Education team and Carnegie Corporation of New York provide a unique opportunity for Google+ Hangout participants to hear directly from and engage with those on the frontlines of higher education reform: Andrew Ng, Co-Founder of Coursera and Director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab; Leon Botstein, President of Bard College; and Anne M. Kress, President of Monroe Community College.
This hangout will cover the challenges facing different types of educational institutions, including the transformation being brought on by "MOOCs"—massive open online courses being offered for little or no cost through entities like Coursera, edX, and Udacity. The panel, moderated by Google Enterprise Education's Jordan Pedraza and Carnegie Corporation of New York's Deanna Lee, will field questions on cost, value—versus values, how to ensure and define students' "success," career readiness, and today's "global campus."
