What does it mean to be educated in the 21st century?

What Does it Mean to be Educated in the 21st Century?
Faculty, staff, community and student panelists discussed how higher education and we at PSU should respond to social and economic needs of the present and future. The day began with a keynote address followed by a multiplicity of voices discussing what it means to be educated in the modern world. The themes explored included how tomorrow’s education will address depth and breadth, productivity and wellness, local and global issues, and inclusion and equity, and there were opportunities for participants to engage in table conversations. Emergent discussion of ideas were captured for ongoing work by the Faculty Senate and other university leadership.

This year’s symposium, “What does it mean to be educated in the 21st century,” explores this topic through multiple lenses. View the video to hear more about what Professors Gina Greco and Maurice Hamington have to say about the Winter Symposium 2016.
