Fully Booked: The End of Universities?

19 October 2018, 13:00 - 14:00

Room S1, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge CB3 9DT

This event is part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas. Bookings will open at 11:00 on Monday 24 September 2018.

From MOOCS to networked institutions, remote and off-shore degrees, flexible and flipped learning, Universities seem to be changing at an unprecedented rate, on an unprecedented scale. This talk lays out some of the most radical of these changes and asks: What are we are witnessing now? Are we in the age of hyper education, and the end of Universities as they have been for centuries?

Talk by Alison Wood, Fellow at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities
