Podcast: Discovery in a Digital World

Speaker: Edward L. Ayers, President, University of Richmond

In the most effective teaching, students create new knowledge even as they learn. Digital environments possess remarkable capacities to foster this excitement of discovery among large, diverse, and widely distributed numbers of people. When thoughtfully designed, these engines of discovery can offer rich repositories of information and useful tools to explore them. Online teaching and traditional classrooms can take much greater advantage of these capacities than they have thus far. Imagining and building exploratory capacity offers exciting challenges for every discipline, constructing new bridges between novice and expert, teaching and scholarship.
