What Happened to US Higher Ed and How Can We Fix It?

  • Fri @IDEATE // 5:45 & J (map)

with: Jeremy Rossmann

The design of a system and the incentives within drive that system's behavior over time. Jeremy will discuss the design choices in US higher education that have driven an absurd increase in costs, compare our system to those worldwide, and discuss the new wave of innovation in higher education that upends the core assumptions that underpin our system of higher education.

Jeremy left MIT CS to start his own college called Make School - Students don't pay unless they are employed, aligning incentives between school and student.
