Description
Expanding on ideas presented in his 2009 New York Times op-ed essay, "End the University as We Know It," Taylor (religion and philosophy of religion, Columbia U. and Union Theological Seminary) aims to spark debate and propose a plan for reforming the college and university system that is influenced by the restructuring of knowledge and increased technological innovation of the digital age. He calls for the elimination of tenure and mandatory retirement at age 70; a more flexible, adaptable, and thematic interdisciplinary curriculum that incorporates online technologies; faculty collaboration; a decreased emphasis on publishing and research and a greater emphasis on teaching; the elimination of duplicate programs; and partnerships with businesses, nonprofits, and organizations.
