Amazing Interviews with Leading Innovators at Ashoka U Exchange

Ashoka U Exchange From March 2-4 I was fortunate to attend the Ashoka U Exchange in Miami. I was able to do Facebook Live Interviews with a number of key innovators working on amazing initiatives in higher ed. Below please find these interviews below (there is also a video of the keynote leading educator/organizer Parker Palmer from the Center from Courage and Renewal gave at the event ). I encourage you to take a minute to take a look and learn more about their amazing work/ideas and be inspired.

The Exchange is one of the world’s largest annual gatherings that showcases exciting new models of social innovation in higher education. Over the course of three days, the Exchange offers over 100 sessions including site visits, workshops, panels, keynotes and curated lunch conversations that all aim to build a community of changemakers in higher education. Each year participants come to the Exchange asking and answering the question: “How can we play a role in transforming our institutions into engines for social impact?”
