Innovation Hub Live: College 2.0

A college degree has a hefty price tag — with digital learning opportunities on the rise, is it really worth the cost?

Join Kara Miller, host of WGBH's Innovation Hub, for a conversation about the future of higher education. Will colleges continue to increase in price, even as the best courses are frequently offered for free online? Are we entering an era in which the lure of prestigious degrees fades and is replaced by competency tests?

A panel of educational trailblazers will join Kara to answer these questions and many more. Guests will include: 

Richard Miller: President of Olin College.

Anant Agarwal: President of edX.

Eric Mazur: Professor of Physics at Harvard and one of the world's pioneers in flipping the classroom.

Peter Hopkins: President of Big Think, whose Floating University initiative has launched at YaleBard and Harvard and publicly on YouTube. 

James McCarthy: President of Suffolk University, who will deliver the evening's opening remarks. 

Innovation Hub will be live at the Modern Theatre at 7 pm on Tuesday, June 4. The event is sponsored by Suffolk University.
