University of Richmond’s Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology will host education writer and independent scholar Audrey Watters, who will lecture on "Education Technology Under Trump,” Feb. 2, 2 p.m. in Tyler Haynes Commons, Alice Haynes Room. 

The lecture will focus on the evolving use of education technology in the presidential transition. Technology has enabled schools to gather data on students and faculty, and Watters will discuss her view on the implications for academic freedom. 

Founder of “Hack Education,” a popular online publication that delves into the history and future of education technology, Watters studies the institutional interconnections between finance, markets, governments and educational rhetoric.

The lecture is free and open to the public, but registration is required. A Q&A session will follow the lecture.
