Lifelong Learning

Almost every college or university mission statement contains some rhetoric about helping students to prepare for lifelong learning. Unfortunately, those same universities don’t provide much detail about how they actually accomplish that goal. There’s at least some evidence that many students don’t pick up many skills in how to actually conduct that kind of self-directed lifelong learning than they would have otherwise. This section of the site is designed as a place to collect materials and thoughts focused on three interrelated topics.

  • Lifelong Learning
  • Self-Directed Learning
  • Learning How to Learn

Currently, there are two pages under construction. The first is on the courses that I am developing for the Christopher Wren Course I am teaching on Emerging Technology and the Future of American Education. The second is focused on resources connected to the Chautauqua Institution, one of America’s most venerable institutions of lifelong learning.
