Big Beacon Radio Ep. 10: Professional Transformation

BB Radio HeaderEp. 10 – Transforming Professional Registration, Professional Societies, and Professional Education

The same economic, technological, and organization forces that are working to disrupt higher education are at work to disrupt professional institutions, including professional registration and licensure, professional societies, and the education of professionals. In this episode, host Dave Goldberg interviews Frank Mruk, Associate Dean of Architecture and Design at the New York Institute of Technology. Frank recently authored a provocative Wall Street Journal piece detailing some of the misalignments in the licensure process for architects. The episode explores the main points of that article as well as the root causes of the disruption, the relationship of the situation in architecture to other professions, the connection to the disruption of higher education, and the ways in which professional institutions of all stripes need to change to better serve both their constituents and society. Join Frank and Dave for this lively conversation about the professionals and their institutions.
