Confronting the Challenges
The Next 100 years of Liberal arts
Sept 30 - Oct 2, 2010
An exceptional program! http://Bit.ly/a42rHb
Liberal Arts education has been challenged in recent years by neo-liberalism
and corporatization, cutbacks in public funding, changes in the student
population, and internationalization. Professors and administrators are
responding in diverse ways that include re-engagement with the values and
roles of the Liberal Arts, innovations in curriculum and pedagogical
approaches, creative and differential use of technology, and the practical
matters of winning public support and retaining students.
