LISTEN: Anya Kamenetz Talks DIY U on WritersCast

From the traditional classroom to à la carte online open courseware and everything in between, the options available to post-high school learners have never been more varied—or more daunting. In this interview, Anya Kamenetz, author of DIY U: Edupunks, Edupreneurs, and the Coming Transformation of Higher Education, talks with David Wilk of WritersCast, the podcast of authors and their work, to discuss her book and the future of higher education.

From WritersCast:

I loved talking to Anya Kamenetz and wish we had more time to talk – not just about her book and the work she did to write it, but her incisive ideas and her many interests in modern, connected culture.  We had a great conversation talking about her book and so many of her ideas.  She’s incredibly intelligent, has complete command of her subject and is a terrific writer  – her extensive experience as a journalist serves her well both in conversation and in the longer form of a full length book.  She can work with big swatches of information and ideas and make them clear and understandable, and importantly, never bores her readers.  Hopefully I’m not alone in wanting see this book help us envision and then implement significant change in education, learning and social change.  This is a book that can make a real difference.
