Cathy N. Davidson

Cathy N. Davidson is a leading innovator in the areas of institutional change, professional development, and personal health, success, and performance in the digital age. A distinguished scholar of the history of technology, she is the author of 20 books on technology, education, and cognitive neuroscience.

In her recent book The New Education, Davidson argues for the need to revolutionize universities to prepare students for a world in flux. From the Ivy League to community colleges, she profiles innovative educators who are changing their classrooms by emphasizing creativity, collaboration, and adaptability over expertise in a single, often abstract discipline. The New Education ultimately shows how we can teach students not only to survive but to thrive amid the challenges to come.
