Join us Thursday, October 6th 2016, for the annual Provost's Lecture on Teaching & Learning! Our guest this year is Andrew Delbanco (Columbia University), who will be talking about his book, College: What It Was, Is, and Should Be, which investigates the mysteries of learning in the context of the commercialization of education and the pressures of assessment. We read Delbanco's book this year for the CTE Summer Book Club.
