Degrees of Uncertainty

Paul Davenport Theatre, Talbot College

Are we still worth the investment? Despite mounds of data countering their claims, critics of a university education have grown louder – and bolder – as recent graduates face an increasingly complex job market.  But universities are not shying away from the debate.

From interdisciplinary environments and experiential learning to new ideas and even newer technologies in the classroom, join Paul Kennedy from CBC’s ideas as he leads a panel of Western faculty, staff and alumni in discussing how postsecondary educators are combating the criticism, and what innovations are guaranteeing the value of a university degree in tomorrow’s world.
