St. Paul Chapter May Meetup

Topic:  Remaking American Higher Education

The affordability crisis--the fact that more and more students are unable to attend college without going deeply into debt--is the most visible of several serious problems in American higher education.  Equally important is the problem of inadequate student learning.  These problems, their causes, and possible cures will be discussed in a wide-ranging presentation offered from a "faculty insider" perspective.

Jerry Smith is a professor of management at the University of Northern Iowa, where he teaches management as well as a course on critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making.  Jerry has published in the academic literatures on these topics.  In the past, he's made presentations on critical thinking and related topics at meetings of the Humanists of Minnesota and Critical Thinking Clubs.  He is currently offering a series of eleven monthly session on "Thinking Critically, Thinking Effectively" that is sponsored by the Humanists of Minnesota.

Breakfast Buffet $12.00 Coffee only $3.00.  We need to plan for the room setup and meal, so if you are going to attend, please RSVP on Meetup.

    Good presentation by Jerry about the systemic problems in higher education. What I found most useful was the broad-reaching approach to the subject.
