A Third Way: Integrating Liberal and Professional Education
Freeland, Richard
New England Journal of Higher Education, Apr 2016
In this article, the author discusses Experiential Education and Liberal Learning. This topic has been on the mind of the author ever since he graduated from a liberal arts college many years ago and began his first real job, whereupon he discovered how much he did not know about putting his ideas to effective use in the world beyond academia. In addition to his personal interests, the relationship between liberal learning and effective action has become increasingly important for educators in the U.S. over the past several decades, although the U.S. is far from anything like consensus on this matter among liberal arts educators. The author chose this topic for the conference for chief academic officers, because he believes the academic leaders of colleges and universities have a critically important role to play in what he calls the "necessary revolution in liberal education."
