One of the conversations that will be held on April 16 at 11:00 am CST is between Cathy Davidson and David Theo Goldberg, founders of HASTAC, lead in discussion by Sheryl Grant, the Director of Social Networking, Digital Media and Learning Competition. Cathy and David will be discussing their book, The Future of Thinking: Learning Institutions in a Digital Age, along with questions submitted by HASTAC members.
