The impetus for the series was to contribute to the Ross mission to continually expand and reshape our notion of schooling. Providing a multidisciplinary platform to the community at large allows guests to discover connections between disciplines, ideas, and phenomena. The format of the series is dynamic; some speakers opt for a lecture and Q & A while others design more participatory workshops. All speakers are encouraged to integrate their presentations with or respond to the speakers who came before them creating a network of insight and meaning.
