Is Your University Designed to Create a Better Future?
The global pandemic has amounted to a stress test of higher education, posing existential internal and external challenges to universities around the world. The internal challenge is about educating students, adapting rapidly to changing circumstances by deploying technology to offer high-quality instruction and conduct research in a number of different modalities. The external challenge revolves around a university’s broader responsibility to help its communities confront the pandemic and future problems. To meet these challenges, universities must be designed and redesigned for flexibility, inclusion, and accelerated innovation.
Join Future Tense and ASU’s Convergence Lab for a binational discussion of how Arizona State University and the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, one of Latin America's most innovative universities, have been addressing the challenge of COVID-19. Presidents Michael Crow and David Garza will compare notes on the lessons of 2020, and explore how universities can continue adapting their design and innovating to create a better future for all.
