The Center For Teaching (CFT) at Vanderbilt University: The Future of Teaching — Alphachimp University educators are exploring questions regarding the role of higher education in three major areas: (1) How can university teaching keep up with the pace of new technology? (2) How can students maintain creativity in their pursuits under great economic pressure? (3) How can teachers incite a sense of social responsibility on the part of their students? On September 9th, 2011, Alphachimp Studio scribed an event that sought to tackle these issues at the Center for Teaching's 25th Anniversary symposium. Graphic recording by Peter Durand The morning began with Derek Bruff, Acting Director of CFT, and faculty panelists Cynthia Pashcal, Cecelia Tichi, and Marshall Eakin.
