As we mentioned previously, NPR radio host Sarah McConnell of “With Good Reason” attended bothing Minding the Future and OpenVa in October, and featuring sessions from both conferences in a recent episode focusing on the future of Higher Education.

You can listen to the episode above, or watch both in their entirety below (note the video of “Wisdom as a Learning Outcome” is the talk delivered days later at TedxUSagrado).
