On Friday afternoon, alumni met with Randy Bass at the first ever co-working space in Austin, Conjunctured, to participate in a Design Lab, an exercise in unbundling higher education and taking a close look into where education ends and begins. For example, does it start in high school and you can take credits towards your degree so in 4 years on campus you wind up with a BA/MA? Or is it less traditional? There was also discussion about alumni life-long learners, and integrating more technology into the classroom and using it so we can see where a student’s mastery is and isn’t.

  • On Saturday, alumni met at Little Woodrow’s on 6th Street to hang out and watch the Hoyas play against Villanova, which was a welcome respite against the rain and constant action happening at SXSW.
