We must pioneer new approaches to learning and teaching that build on the transformative potential of a digital age, as well as emerging insights into human behavior and the human brain. In Cambridge and Boston and in our connections with the wider world, we must seek to set a standard for innovation in pedagogy and commit to its advance.
