“Beyond the Walls: The University of the Future,” brought scholars, policy makers, administrators, and technology experts to Penn’s Perry World House, on Oct. 12 to discuss the future of higher education and how online learning plays a crucial role in achieving the goals of equitable and global education. Co-organized by Penn’s Online Learning Initiative (OLI) and the Office of the Provost, the summit addressed technology’s role in creating an urgency for higher education institutions to meet the needs of a changing economy and societal expectations. The summit featured panel discussions focused on four themes: The Global University, The Digital University, The Equitable University, and The Lifelong University. “The Digital University” panel looked at the ways in which technology creates new challenges and opportunities for institutions of higher learning. The panel, moderated by OLI Faculty Director Peter Decherney, discussed how online education is increasingly being adopted by universities across the world.
