UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

“The Future of Learning”

Dr. Bennett Ramsey (Religious Studies) will deliver the inaugural lecture in a new annual series titled “The Future of Learning,” sponsored by Undergraduate Studies.

His lecture on Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013, is titled “After Learning: Education on a Hot Planet.” It will address what we need to be teaching our students in order to prepare them to lead successful and fulfilling lives in an economically and environmentally more constrained future.

The lecture will take place at 7 p.m. in the EUC Auditorium, with refreshments to follow. Chancellor Linda P. Brady will offer opening remarks. All are welcome.

Ramsey is the incoming Senior Fellow in the Warren Ashby Residential College.

This event will serve as the kickoff to an annual series of events that Undergraduate Studies hopes will annually convene and sustain a multi-perspective, campus and community conversation about the challenges and opportunities facing higher education and how UNCG best responds to benefit students.

The Faculty Teaching and Learning Commons will focus on some of the issues raised in this year’s lecture, in events this semester.

Those with questions about the series may contact Steve Roberson or John Sopper.
