Summary

In this no-holds-barred session, Kate Walsh (NCTQ) and Benjamin Riley (Deans for Impact) debate whether we actually need less innovation in education, particularly when preparing teachers. In what will surely feel like an anathema to the SXSWedu crowd, participants will be asked to close their laptops (gasp!) and to pocket cellphones (shudder!) as we discuss whether education in the 21st century is really all that different from the 20th...or the 3rd even! Dick Startz (UC Santa Barbara), a remarkably entertaining economist, moderates.
