Chancellor Don Tapscott Speaks to a New Generation

Don Tapscott, one of the world’s great thinkers on the Internet, became Chancellor of his alma mater, Trent University, in 2013. Over the next 6 years, he spoke to students about all kinds of things — designing their lives, the value of a liberal arts education, how to thrive in the digital age, how to be resilient. Those delightful speeches have been compiled in Big Ideas. This book also includes articles previously published in Harvard Business ReviewThe Globe and Mail, and other journals about his ground-breaking ideas on the impact of the blockchain on higher education, the dark side of the digital economy, and the challenge that awaits young people graduating from university.
