What is the role of technology in liberal arts colleges?

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Interesting piece by the President of Bowdoin College on impact (and potential impact) of technology on liberal arts colleges.  Though we are now a university, many at Mary Washington still consider the school at heart to be a liberal arts college.  Given that, how much do you think President Mills is right about here?  Where would disagree with his assessment?


NOTE: Mills indicates that his thinking has been influenced by James Gleick’s The Information.
