The College of Letters and Science is pleased to present
the Fall 2011 Colloquium on Undergraduate Education:
The Virtual University: Challenges and Opportunities
Wednesday, November 16, 2011, 3:30-5:00 p.m.
106 Stanley Hall
In recent years the rise of on-line communications has transformed university life, reshaping everything from staff communications to classroom instruction. This fall’s Colloquium explores the rise of on-line education and its implications for the undergraduate experience at Berkeley and beyond. Do on-line approaches and resources herald a more interactive and flexible approach to instruction, advising, and other aspects of undergraduate life? Do they, in contrast, threaten face-to-face interactions and undermine personal contacts among students, faculty, and staff? Is the rise of on-line education inevitable, and how will it evolve over the coming years? The Colloquium will discuss these questions and more, and we invite all members of the campus community to join us.
