There is a growing body of scholarly and popular literature on how people LEARN.

There is far less study on how universities ADVANCE learning.

How is LEARNING SCIENCE translated into organizational change? How does it makes its way into our classrooms and teaching practices? What steps should higher ed leaders take to match HOW the students at their schools learn with the research on how students learn BEST?

In their new book, Learning Innovation and the Future of Higher Education, Joshua Kim, PhD and Edward Maloney, PhD, explore these central questions of “learning innovation.” As technology irrevocably changes the higher education landscape, Kim and Maloney’s new book makes the case for changing not only what needs to be taught but how best to teach it. From active learning and inclusive pedagogy to online and hybrid courses, traditional institutions are leveraging their fundamental strengths while challenging long-standing assumptions about how teaching and learning happen.

Join Vice President for Academic Innovation and New Ventures Michelle Marks on February 25 as she leads Drs. Kim and Maloney in a conversation on the causes and consequences of how universities change in response to advances in the science of learning.
