Immersion and the Age of Digital Distraction
9882 South Santa Monica Blvd Beverly Hills, CA 90212
As attention is fragmented across digital interactions and focus is increasingly hard to find, what is lost? And how can a liberal arts education respond to the challenge of digital distraction?
Get together with fellow alums at The Peninsula Beverly Hills to hear from Penn Arts & Sciences faculty about experiments in immersive learning experiences—involving approaches that both embrace and step back from the call of new technology. We will also celebrate the recent launch of Penn Arts & Sciences’ newest department, Cinema and Media Studies. Afterward, enjoy a post-event reception with food and drink. Come learn and connect with us!
