Keynote Speaker

Paul Hanstedt portraitDr. Paul Hanstedt: Director of the Houston H. Harte Center for Teaching and Learning, Washington and Lee University; author of Creating Wicked Students: Designing Courses for a Complex World

Dr. Handstedt will kick off our two-day event on March 23rd with a virtual, interactive presentation on the following topic. Come ready to engage and join this timely conversation!

Creating Wicked Students: Higher Education in the Age of Covid
Students certainly need content and skills to engage with the world. But at a time when we’re faced with unprecedented challenges so large that they break the system—every system—what else is necessary? This talk explores the “wicked problems” our students will face upon graduation, issues that are dynamic, shifting, resistant to simple solutions. What has the pandemic era revealed about how we need to rethink higher education at every level, from institutional structures all the way down to the papers we assign and the questions we ask on exams? What, finally, do we need to do if we’re to develop graduates who have the abilities—and the motivations—to take thoughtful risks as they tackle the complicated problems of a dynamic world?
