No one remembers everything they learned in school, right? We cannot possibly retain all of those facts, figures, and formulas. So, 20 years after we’re done with our formal education, what have we taken away from that experience? In this episode of KUT’s podcast Higher Ed, KUT’s Jennifer Stayton and Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger try to answer that 20-year question about education and learning. Hear how a simple snack of milk and cookies can lead to much bigger questions about the duration and substance of education and learning. And get ready for a new mind-boggling math puzzler about the concept of infinity.
