Looking Forward: Duke History Revisited 2017

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2017-10-11 21:00
Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

This summer, our second class of Duke History Revisited students dug into the University's history, developing individual research projects that tell the stories of people and events that are not widely known using materials at the Duke University Archives.

On October 11th, five of the program's students will come together to recap their projects. During this public event, each student will briefly introduce their topic, highlight their research discoveries, and offer their own insight into Duke's history. The presentations will be followed by refreshments and an opportunity to talk with the students in more detail.

The students' research projects are also available on the University Archives' Duke History Revisited website.

Duke History Revisited was funded by Humanities Writ Large, the Dean of Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, and the Duke University Archives.

The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2017-10-11 20:00
Other (see event description)
West Campus

Cathy Davidson TalkIn her latest book, educational innovator Cathy N. Davidson (Duke's former Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies) argues that the American university is stuck in the past--and shows how we can revolutionize it to prepare students for our age of constant change. 

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, graduate and professional schools in an attempt to prepare young people for a world transformed by the telegraph and the Model T. This approach to education worked for most of the 20th century but is unsuited to the era of the gig economy. 

From the Ivy League to community colleges, Davidson introduces us to innovators who are remaking college for our own time, by emphasizing student-centered learning that values creativity, dexterity, innovation, and social change. In this talk, she shows how we can revolutionize our universities to help students be leaders of change, not simply subject to it. 

She will be joined in conversation with Edward Balleisen, Professor of History and Public Policy and Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies at Duke.

This event is co-sponsored by the Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies, Bass Connections, Center for Instructional Technology (CIT), Dean of Humanities, Forum for Scholars and Publics, Franklin Humanities Institute (FHI), Libraries, and Provost’s Office.

Location: Penn Pavilion
