RSA Future of Learning Network Virtual Salon
The Royal Society is launching the Future of Learning Network this month. The network hosts regular conversations where people come together to discuss challenges and opportunities for promoting innovative thinking within the broad field of education. Conversations are open to educational practitioners and those interested in discussing contemporary education, and the conversation topics are determined by the members of the network.
This network can also offer a community of people who can provide critical responses to the work being published by network members, as well as a place to store and share resources and research databases.
Bob Coulter, FRSA and Gregor Thuswaldner, FRSA are co-founders of the RSA's Future of Learning Network.
Join us for our virtual salon on May 29 at 12 noon (ET) on "Who Needs the Liberal Arts in the Digital Age." HASTAC member Gregor Thuswaldner will be hosting the virtual salon.
Liberal arts programs have seen a steep decline in recent years, as students tend to favor majors that prepare them for specific jobs. Have the liberal arts become superfluous? Do they need to be marketed differently? What is the role of the liberal arts in the digital age?
