UnCollege founder will speak at Winters library

From page A3 | March 24, 2013 |

Dale Stephens, author of the recently published “Hacking Your Education: Ditch the Lectures, Save Tens of Thousands, and Learn More Than Your Peers Ever Will” will speak about his book on Thursday. His talk will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Winters Community Library, 708 Railroad Ave. in Winters.

Stephens got his start in writing while attending elementary school in Winters. He ultimately completed his education through home schooling. Along with his writing, Stephens has provided his webmaster skills to the Winters Friends of the Library and is a recipient of the Yolo Youth Services Award from the Yolo Community Foundation.

At age 21, Stephens founded UnCollege.org because he believes students are paying too much for college and learning too little. In “Hacking Your Education,” he speaks to a new culture of “hackademics” who think college diplomas are antiquated. Hackademics abandon society’s linear path to success and bend institutions to fit their own reality. Stephens will talk about how he and dozens of others have hacked their education, and proposes how others can, too.

Stephens has appeared on major news networks and has been featured in the New York Times, New York Magazine, Fast Company and Forbes. In May 2011, he was selected as a Thiel Fellow, a program recognizing the top 24 entrepreneurs around the world under the age of 20. In addition to leading UnCollege, Stephens advises education and technology companies.
