Summary
Our current system of higher education dates to the period from 1865 to 1925, when the nation's new universities created grades and departments, majors and minors, in an attempt to prepare young people for a world transformed by the telegraph and the Model T. As Davidson argues, this approach to education is wholly unsuited to the era of the gig economy. From the Ivy League to community colleges, she introduces us to innovators who are remaking college for our own time by emphasizing student-centered learning that values creativity in the face of change above all.
Summary
A leading educational thinker argues that American universities have become unduly compromised by a century-old educational model based on goals no longer compatible with today's needs, introducing the philosophies of innovators who are remaking college so that it provides for today's real-world students
