Over the past few decades, higher education has been vastly transformed by online course offerings and myriad changes driven by technological advances and innovation. The old model of straight lectures and recitations to courses large and small has been challenged by new research as well. This documentary from American RadioWorks looks at different educators and institutions as they think about how to transform the college classroom experience. The lead reporter for this project was Emily Hanford, and visitors can listen to the entire program here. The program is divided into three primary sections, including The Problem with Lecturing and Inventing a New Kind of College, which looks into the innovative learning environment that's been created at the University of Minnesota at Rochester. Visitors can also read a transcript of the program and flip through the Reporter's Notebook which features Hanford's own thoughts on these ambitious efforts.
