Annual Meeting and Dinner


The Harvard Club in Maine warmly invites you and your family & friends to join fellow alumni at our 2018 Annual Meeting and Dinner for good conversation, fine food, and an interesting presentation by Harry Lewis AB ’68, AM ’73, PhD ’74, Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science, on Reinventing the Classroom, while Rethinking Education.  Professor Lewis is also former Dean of Harvard College, inventor of the now infamous CS50, and teacher to the likes of Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg. Do join us for this event – you will not be disappointed!  (We apologize for the last-minute switch from Michael Brenner, who has a family emergency and is not able to join us, but we know that Professor Lewis will be a great addition!)


"Some years ago, students stopped coming to my lectures, which were being video-recorded for broader distribution. Rather than restricting access, I changed my classroom style to make it worthwhile for students to show up. I’ll describe this and another Harvard experiment in Internet-mediated pedagogy. Since the Internet is a better vehicle than the lecture hall for simply transmitting information, it can free us to focus on deeper educational objectives—if we know what those are."
