Podcast: Lifelong Learning and Higher Ed

Joseph Aoun, President of Northeastern University, talks about lifelong learning and its’ relationship to higher education, as well as barriers to entry for experiential education.

Auon states, “My advice to high school students is do not restrict yourself to one field, one domain…Go for combined degrees in different fields… But also go out, test yourself, in the real world through experiential learning.”
