Explore the future of higher education in the first Vancouver Campus Plan Speaker Series presentation, as William J. Flynn examines critical changes that are unfolding in the way students learn. Advances in digital technology, in particular, have tremendous implications not only for the way institutions educate, but also for the physical planning of campuses. Learn how universities and colleges, including UBC, can adapt to these changes by using new forms of learning environments, and by shifting the focus of contemporary pedagogy from teaching to learning.
Mr. Flynn is the Director for the U.S. Council for Continuing Education & Training (NCCET) and has presented more than 130 keynote addresses, seminars and forums across the United States and Canada. Flynn is also an accomplished educator with over 30 years experience working as faculty and administrator, as well as a published author of numerous articles on teaching and learning. His critical views on higher education target such issues as the impact of technology on teaching and learning, lifelong learning, and trends in workforce development. (A Vancouver Campus Plan
