Description

A leading educational thinker argues that the American university is stuck in the past - and shows how we can revolutionize it to prepare students for our age of constant change.

Our current system of higher education dates to the period from 1865 to 1925, when the nation's new universities created grades and departments, majors and minors, in an attempt to prepare young people for a world transformed by the telegraph and the Model T.

As Cathy Davidson argues in The New Education, this approach to education is wholly unsuited to the era of the gig economy. From the Ivy League to community colleges, she introduces us to innovators who are remaking college for our own time by emphasizing student-centered learning that values creativity in the face of change above all. The New Education ultimately shows how we can teach students not only to survive but to thrive amid the challenges to come.

Practical Enough / Scholarly Enough

Cathy Davidson goes beyond the mere holistic identification of the current problems with American Higher Education - she promotes some very doable solutions to developing a 21st century workforce that is both educated capable of adjusting to what challenges the future may bring. Educators are tasked with preparing students for the future - a role that is increasingly challenging in a rapidly evolving world. That is why it is so important that we employ methods that will train people to be adaptive - to find answers, collaborate, think, and solve problems rather than pursuing trivia that will not benefit them in the real world. The book is not too scholarly, which is a big plus. Sometimes scholars write to impress other scholars. This book is readable and her observations/arguments are practical.

a liberal with no new answers

If you want some stories of hard luck students and some stories of teachers doing out of the ordinary things, this book might serve your purpose. You also need to appreciate the author's pro feminism and pro homosexual agenda. If you are really looking for answers to higher education you will be disappointed. No, copying community colleges is not the solution, and no, making education student centric and degrading it's quality should not be the way ahead. Students do not know what is best for their own education... but this book shows academic experts do not know either. The reader's voice is excellent, but the content is so full of unnecessary content I had to listen at 1.8 speed to stay minimally interested.

More liberal than educational

While author clearly shows knowledge on the history of education, she fails to separate her proposals of improvement for higher Ed from her liberal/socialist political agenda, including awkward citations to Karl Marx. In summary, she would love to take as much tax payers money as possible and spend it at will in higher ed including free tuition, high salaries to faculty, and no real requirement or accountability to any counter part to show that this money was actually worth spending.
