The Long View Conversations

We regularly host one-hour virtual seminars on long-term trends that affect higher education. For installments in this series, the featured speaker presents on an emerging issue for 30-minutes followed by a 30-minute conversation between the speaker, Rob Dunn and other attendees. Conversations have included:

  • Disruptive Science, with Russell Funk, Associate Professor of Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota
  • AI in Higher Education, with James Lester, Director of the NSF AI Institute for Engaged Learning and NC State Distinguished Professor of Computer Science
