In the first of two Spring sessions, Mitchell Stevens, professor in the Stanford Graduate School of Education will examine how Americans combine learning, paid work and the life course and how this process is undergoing profound change. People are entering and re-entering formal leaning opportunities over longer periods of their lives, and a great many learning opportunities are provided by organizations that are not schools. The Stanford working learners project contributes thought leadership to inform research and federal policy for this dynamic terrain.

This session will be virtual, from 4:00 p.m.- 4:30 p.m. (Pacific), and include time for Q&A.
A no-cost registration is required for each talk.

Mitchell Stevens is a Professor at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. He’s an organizational sociologist with longstanding interests in educational sequences, lifelong learning, alternative educational forms, and the formal organization of knowledge. With John Mitchell, he co-directs the Stanford Pathways Lab.
