Sign Up for CIT’s April Book Club on Randy Bass’s “Open and Integrative”

Due to faculty interest in the keynote by Randy Bass at the 2016 CIT Showcase, and requests to continue the dialogue on the future of teaching at Duke prompted by his talk, the CIT is organizing book clubs around Randy Bass’s latest book, “Open and Integrative: Designing Liberal Education for the New Digital Ecosystem.”

Bass’s book, coauthored with Bret Eynon, looks at reimagining the core purposes of liberal education in the context of technological change.  How can technology “rebundle” college experiences that have traditionally been separated?  What role do emerging technologies play in making a quality liberal education available to all?

We will be discussing the first half of the book on April 6th and the second half on April 13th; both sessions will take place in the CIT Lab, Bostock 024, from 3-5 pm. If you are interested and would like a free copy of the book, register and let us know whether you want a hard or electronic copy of the book.  The book club is open to Duke faculty of any rank.

To allow for distributing books to participants, the deadline for applications for the book club is March 27.

We hope you can join us to discuss this thought-provoking book. If you have any questions, or if you are interested in forming a book club around a teaching topic in your own department, contact the CIT.
