Global Citizens, Education, and Technology

sig_themes1The signature theme of Global Citizens, Education, and Technology builds on the core educational mission and strengths of LAS. To thrive in a global, rapidly changing world, future leaders must be scientifically and culturally literate individuals who are able to live and work effectively in diverse communities. LAS holds a leadership role in providing life skills in critical thinking, communication, mathematics, and science. As new pedagogies and learning technologies transform the landscape of higher education, LAS will continue its entrepreneurial and creative work in developing innovative educational programs and researching the interplay among learning, technology, and the human experience.  This theme blends our educational commitment to develop national models for higher education in the 21st century with our strengths in anticipating and understanding how technology changes the nature, pace, and types of global problems and possibilities.
