Beyond These Times: The Changing Mind

Join us for the second event of this two-part series, which features a free public conversation where prominent authors and visionaries join early career educators for a close look at the challenge and promise of a future we can only begin to imagine. What will schools look like? How will the role of the educator change? What will be the impact of technology? What do we need to be doing today to prepare our teachers and our children for a very different tomorrow?

Speakers for the event include Dr. James Paul Gee, Tre Childress, Nancy Nassr, Nancy Serrano, and Sylvia Ewing (moderator).

Advance reservations are available at HERE. Seating is general admission. Lobby opens at 5:30 p.m. Please arrive no later than 6:15 p.m. for will-call tickets.

"Beyond These Times" is a working collaboration between three Chicago landmark nonprofit organizations: Chicago Shakespeare Theater, National Louis University, and the Golden Apple Foundation. All three organizations are celebrating important milestones in their history: Chicago Shakespeare Theater celebrates its 25th Anniversary Season in 2011–12, Golden Apple just turned 25, and National Louis University marked its 125th year. All three organizations bring a rich learning experience to Chicago.
