Aspen Undergrad Consortium 2018, Featuring the Business of Teaching

In June 2018, The Aspen Institute and Copenhagen Business School will jointly design and host the next convening of the Aspen Undergraduate Consortium, featuring the Business of Teaching. Over 2.5 days, we aim to inspire teaching faculty and deans to innovate in the classroom by sharing practical, “state of the art” approaches to blending the liberal arts and business. Our agenda will feature:

  • Deep dives into exemplary teaching—At the heart of the convening, participants will examine (and experience) each other’s teaching—and to workshop distinctive elements and themes. These sessions are designed to give participants new insights and actionable ideas for their own teaching.
  • An exploration of the notion of “blended learning”—As a touchstone throughout, we’ll consider how we might we re-imagine student learning, animated by the notion of “blending.” How do we teach across disciplines, across space and time, across virtual and real spaces?
  • Corporate voices—A select number of business executives will join us as co-developers of business leaders of the future. What kinds of new learning and development resonate in today’s business climate? What are businesses seeking to achieve in their own training and development efforts?
  • Dialogues with the city, self, and colleagues—To enliven the imagination of participants and maximize learning, our agenda will include a carefully designed city tour, time for reflection, and time to connect with peers at schools from the U.S. and Europe.
