The Future of DIgital Education (Virtual Conference)

How will higher education evolve to accommodate digital technologies in the classroom, changing sensibilities among students and new forms of knowledge, learning and expression?
This panel discussion will address some emerging challenges posed by the use of digital media, social networks and games within educational contexts. Panelists will speak from a wide range of recent experiences with teaching in virtual or hybrid learning environments and suggest strategies for the future.
Panelists include Rebecca Nesson of Harvard Law School, Douglas Thomas of USC’s Annenberg School for Communication, Michael Eisenberg of the University of Washington Information School and Henry Lowood of Stanford University. The panel will be moderated by Steve Anderson of the USC School of Cinematic Arts.
