"Academic Innovation for the Public Good" Book Talk Series Collection: About the Series

About the Series


Trinity College has partnered with Stanford Digital Education to launch a new book talk series, Academic Innovation for the Public Good, which will foster discussion about how to make higher education’s future more equitable and accessible. This guide provides a complete list of authors, event dates, and links to the books, which are available for check out. 

Each hour-long Zoom interview features an author of a recently published book exploring the role of colleges and universities in addressing society’s most pressing problems and the potential for innovation to address those challenges. An expert in the author’s field will conduct the interview, followed by questions from the audience. The conversations will begin at 7 p.m. Eastern time from January through October on the fourth Wednesday of every month, except for the June event, which will be a week earlier. To learn more about the motivation for this series, go to Inside Higher Ed for a Q&A with Eshleman and Stanford’s Matthew Rascoff.

The book conversations are free, and all are welcome. Those wishing to attend one or more of the events should register in advance via this link: https://bit.ly/3ASG8G4
