141: Future-Proofed Education - with Dr. Stephen Kosslyn, President Emeritus, & CAO, Foundry College

This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #46.  In this episode of The EdUp Experience, we welcome Dr. Stephen Kosslyn, President Emeritus & CAO, Foundry College.   Foundry College has created programs that are future-proofed against technology, and through active learning in their "Forge" learning environment, students emerge skilled up and business ready.  Dr. Stephen Kosslyn served on the Harvard faculty for many years but saw the lack of practicality in some of the curriculum as it related to the workforce.  Hear how he transitioned from traditional to non-traditional education and why the future of higher ed includes more associates degrees, curriculum-to-job design, and an enriched ecosystem where competition will lead to greater differentiation.

Dr. Stephen M. Kosslyn is the President Emeritus and Chief Academic Officer of Foundry College. He led a team of instructional designers in building the Foundry curriculum, and designing the teaching techniques, based on his decades of work in learning science. Most recently, Dr. Kosslyn served as the Founding Dean and Chief Academic Officer of the Minerva Schools at the Keck Graduate Institute. He was previously the director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences and Professor of Psychology at Stanford University.  Prior to that, he was chair of the Department of Psychology, Dean of Social Science, and the John Lindsley Professor of Psychology in Memory of William James at Harvard University. He received a B.A. from UCLA and a Ph.D. from Stanford University, both in psychology.
