EdSurge Live: A Town-Hall Style Video Forum

What if there was a talk show about edtech? We thought we’d try one, so we’re launching EdSurge Live, an experimental way to gather readers and experts via video chat to talk about key issues facing those exploring the future of higher education.

NEXT EPISODE: What Students Want Colleges to Know About How They Learn

Tuesday, July 24 at 1 pm PT/4 pm ET

There’s often a disconnect between what students expect from college teaching and what ends up happening in the classroom. And often students’ opinion on the matter can get lost as college leaders and edtech businesses push new approaches to curriculum and teaching styles.

For July's EdSurge Live video forum, we’ve invited three outspoken students to share their views on college as they’d like to see it. All three have been part of our spin-off student-led publication, EdSurge Independent. To get a sense of where they stand, you can read their pieces about The Power of Student Voice, A Hong Konger’s Response towards the Pressure-cooker Education, and Digital Storytelling as a Vehicle for Foreign Language Acquisition.

We’ll be joined by:

Angele Law, an MBA student at MIT’s Sloan School of Management and a strategic summer associate at Boston Public Schools. Previously she was a management consultant at Boston Consulting Group, and she is the leader of the current cohort at EdSurge Independent.

Patrick Grady O'Malley, a graduate student at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center, where he is pursuing a master’s degree in digital humanities. He is also the editor for student content for EdSurge Independent.

Megan Simmons, an undergraduate at Barnard College in New York City studying political science, and was a fellow for EdSurge Independent last semester. She is also director of programming for Student Voice, a national nonprofit group representing students pushing for equitable schools.
