Building an Inspiring Learning Environment: Lehigh’s Mountaintop Experience

While there is still far to go in the transformation of higher ed, there are plenty of universities that are paving the way with innovative programs and initiatives. Lehigh University’s Mountaintop is one of those programs. Mountaintop was developed to be a unique learning environment in which students are given the freedom to pursue answers to open-ended questions while working on projects across all disciplines. Big Beacon Radio host Dave Goldberg is joined by Lehigh’s Alan Snyder, Sarah Stanlick, Michael Spear, as well as recent Lehigh graduate and Mountaintop participant, Shannon Varcoe. Join Alan, Sarah, Michael, Shannon and Dave for a discussion of Lehigh’s groundbreaking Mountaintop initiative and the impact the program has had on students.
