Festina Lente: Re-imagining UT Austin

Over the next semester, I am going to be writing opinion columns about the landscape of higher education in Texas and the consequences for the UT Austin campus.  This is the first, introductory column, where I describe the project (and reference the Roman emperor Augustus!)  I'll be visiting classes around campus, talking to instructors, and getting feedback from students in an effort to try to figure out what works and what doesn't, in both online and onsite classrooms.  I'm very excited about this opportunity, not least because it will give me an excuse to learn a lot more about what is happening in campuses around the UT Austin campus.
