In early May a group of students from BHSEC Newark attended the “Leveling the Learning Curve: Creating a More Inclusive and Connected University” conference at Columbia University. The purpose of the conference was to explore questions of digital education, equity and access. Participants included leaders from across academia (Bard College/Open Society University Network, Columbia, Dartmouth, eCornell, Stanford, Penn, UC Berkeley, etc.), the development world (World Bank and UN Development Programme) and many top EdTech firms (Coursera, EdX, 2U, Wiley University Service, YouTube, Google, etc.). There were college students from all over the world participating via Zoom, as well as graduate students from Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs.
