The first week of October has certainly been a busy one! Students and educators at both Duke University’s PhD Lab and The Graduate Center, CUNY attended workshops to design an open, collaborative, peer-generated syllabus for a course on “Mapping the Futures of Higher Education: Teaching, Learning and Research in the Age of Google.” Check out–and more importantly, contribute to–our syllabus!
As stated in the syllabus, “We are also making this into an open public Google Doc that anyone can add to, remix, download, and use for any classroom purpose. We are hoping that many classes around the world use this syllabus as a starting point for their own collaborative “intellectual hackathons” to generate new topics, new descriptions, new public or interactive learning and research activities, and new bibliographic resources.”
The first course hosted by the Futures Initiative will be taught by former Graduate Center President William Kelly and HASTAC co-founder, and now Distinguished Professor at the Graduate Center, Cathy N. Davidson.
