Socratic Seminar: What's The Function of Technology?
A new series, YPIN's Socratic Seminars are a moderated discussion around top issues of the day in true dialectic method. Articles highlighting viewpoints on both sides of an argument are provided as suggested reading, although participants are encouraged to participate even if armed only with their opinions. The Socratic Seminar series does not place parameters on where the discussion may go, rather it provides a starting point and background information to fuel discussion.

The November 29th Socratic Seminar asks the question "What's the function of technology in life, education, law, relationships, medicine, work, and art?" Is it a tool to aid and speed communication, or a barrier to meaningful relationships? Does it lead to student-centric blended learning, or does it stunt the interpersonal skills of our students? Will it save you money or drive you into debt? Could it save your life or redirect funding otherwise used for underserved populations? Will it level the playing field or remove opportunities and careers altogether? Does it blur the line between professionals and armatures or open the door for broader distribution of the arts? Can it, and should it do any or all of the above? Does technology have a time and place, and how are those boundaries determined?

YPIN/WAC Members & Students: Free
Non-Members: $5

Attendance is limited 25 participants per Seminar, so sign up fast!
