EDUCAUSE review onlineEDUCAUSE review online

Forum Futures 2005 is a collection of summaries of the 16 papers presented and discussed at the Forum's 2004 Aspen Symposium. Papers include topics such as the fears of globalization, next-generation educational software, and aligning athletics and academic values. Scholars include Joseph Nye, who coined the term "soft power" and describes how it differs from hard military strength and why it is critical in our globalized society; Howard Gardner, who discusses the decline of societal trustees in America today and the consequences; John Gabrieli, whose research on human memory and the brain holds great potential for teaching, learning, and assessment; and Jack DeGioia, whose philosophical approach provides a unique view of college sports' role in American higher education.
