- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
If you weren’t able to make it to the Library’s annual Casey-McIlvane Memorial Lecture in October, you can now watch the video online! The lecture, titled Bioethics and the Revolution in Higher Education, featured Professor Karen Stohr and Kelly W. Heuer of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics discussing the Institute’s upcoming MOOC on Bioethics and how new teaching technologies are revolutionizing one of Georgetown’s premier disciplines. They were joined by Rosalena O’Neil of the Landegger Program in International Business Diplomacy, who presented on her work with the University’s first MOOC, Globalization’s Winners and Losers, launched this past fall.
Together, these presentations illuminate some of the great opportunities—and challenges—higher education faces as we move into a technology-rich future.
