ACSA 2011 Admin Conference: Old School/New School

I am very excited to be involved in this year's ACSA Administrators Conference in Los Angeles. I was invited to participate in a panel discussion surrounding the challenges and opportunities for schools of architecture in the 21st century:

How should architecture schools respond to the changes posed by social media, the proliferation of data, globalization, climate change, and demands for economic and ethnic diversity? Are our existing educational concepts and methods adequate?

The Challenges and/or Opportunities panel will take place on Friday, November 11 from 10:30 to 12:00 AM and will include the following participants....

Ila Berman, California College of the Arts
Michael Speaks, Univesrity of Kentucky
Frances Bronet, University Oregon
Richard Sommer, University of Toronto
Robert Somol, University of Illinois, Chicago
Nathan Miller, NBBJ
Steven Lewis, RAW
