Mason's Future of Higher Education Forum
A Message from President Cabrera:
This is both an exciting and challenging time for Higher Education. While we are asked to consider methods to deliver education in a more cost efficient manner, we also want to find ways to be creative and innovative in improving the quality of education and increasing our reach. This forum provides an opportunity for us to engage in critical conversations that will lead us toward a new vision and strategic plan for this great University.
A Message from Provost Stearns:
A mix of external and internal speakers will address topics such as the practical implications of recent research on learning and assessment and lessons from alternative methods of educational delivery. A key goal is to address the conundrum of pursuing opportunities to improve learning outcomes while responding to the imperative to cut costs. The Forum is designed to present and stimulate ideas and discussion, to prepare for future planning, but not to offer precise agendas for change. Faculty, staff and students will be invited as space permits.
