LEARNING AND LIFE ... Reimagining "learning and the life course" will be the theme of a public panel Tuesday, April 15, at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. Lengthening life spans, extension of adolescence and demands of parenting and paid work are "obliging Americans to rethink every phase of adulthood," said organizers. At the same time, digital media are making it possible to reorganize learning. Among the panelists will be Susan Hoffman, director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Center at the University of California, Berkeley, which offers community and classes for adults 50 and above. Other panelists are former Stanford School of Medicine Dean Philip Pizzo, Stanford d.school Managing Director Sarah Stein Greenberg and human development researcher Richard Settersten of Oregon State University. The panel is organized by the Ed School's program on Education's Digital Future. The event is open to the public but seating is limited.
