It would seem that involving, and engaging students more in their own learning would be a more urgent priority than it has been. In this episode, host Dave Goldberg explores this situation with two student advocates for change, Athena Lin, a junior at UIUC and Tyler Lindow, a senior at UCSD. Both spent last summer at Olin College in an REU investigating engineering education, and together they bring important insights into how education is disempowering and how it can become challenging, engaging, and empowering. Join Athena, Tyler, and Dave for an important conversation. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
