About This Event

The Center for American Progress is proud to host Anya Kamenetz and other leading higher education policy experts for a panel discussion about Kamenetz's new e-book, The Edupunks' Guide. The discussion will focus on emerging strategies for students to acquire high-quality education and credentials outside of the traditional classroom. The session will also cover new educational models and technologies that could potentially transform the higher education industry. As Anya says in her e-book, "College takes time. College is expensive. College is exclusive. College is no longer the only way to get a great education."

This new e-book presents an ideal opportunity to bring together students, educators, researchers, and policymakers to continue our ongoing exploration of higher education policies that make it easier for nontraditional students to access high-quality education at a reasonable cost.

Copies of The Edupunks' Guide are available here.
