The University as a Design Problem: Redesigning Georgetown for the Global Century

This course focused on the envisioning of a new model for the university as a learning-focused ecosystem, through the processes of a design studio. The studio took Georgetown University as its specific ‘site,’ focusing on its unique role in a global century in which four fundamental forces are profoundly affecting everything we do: digitization, globalization, urbanization, and the increasing role of culture, religion, and diversity. This course (IDST 325) was taught by Randy Bass, Department of English, and Ann Pendleton-Jullian, Office of the President, as a Doyle Seminar (small upper-level classes that foster deepened student learning about diversity and difference through research and dialogue).
