NO CLASSROOMS, JUST EXPERIENCES: “free thinking” the future of higher ed

The Chronicle of Higher Education

“I’m serving on a ‘Student Experience Task Force’— which among other things is exploring the relationship between residence halls, classrooms, laboratories, dining facilities, student centers, libraries, gyms, and outdoor spaces across my campus—with an eye toward long-term strategies. This is a yearlong process.

Our first assignment was to ‘free think’ one possibility twenty to thirty years from now. These ideas were not expected to be grounded in reality— but to intentionally be provocative, disruptive, or transformative.”
