In this episode, I interview Robin Goldberg, the Chief Experience Officer of Minerva Schools at KGI. Minerva started as a project to rethink undergraduate education in the US, and move it beyond the current stage when students spend a huge amount of money for what often amounts to poorly designed education. They have designed a whole new curriculum and pedagogical approach, that runs almost entirely online - an inspiration not just in the age of Covid. Apart from the state of undergraduate education and Minverva's proposed solution, we also discuss lessons learned in the process of starting a new educational endeavour, so this episode is well worth a listen. If you then want to learn more, check out the book published by Minverva's founder: Building the Intentional University.
