Book Talk 

Open Education Book (The Philosophy and Practices That Are Revolutionizing Education and Science

Join us for a lively conversation about the thoughts and ideas from Open. "The creation and spread of knowledge has always redefined the possibilities of the human experience. Among all the inventions of humans - water treatment, bows and arrows, space travel - formal education is, perhaps, the most powerful. Whether in the form of trade apprenticeships, religious schools, or modern universities, education is the principal way in which we pass skills and knowledge from one person, and even one generation to another."
