Designing Education for the 21st Century: Challenges, Opportunities, and Lessons Learned

The Problem-Solving Generation

Monday, November 2, 2020

2-3 P.M.

As the world gets more digitalized, it also gets more complex. We now operate in the digitalization era and our job in higher education is to help students develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities they will need to thrive in this new digitalization environment. Higher education needs to prepare students to solve problems we haven’t defined yet, using technology that hasn’t been invented, in roles that do not exist today. To thrive in this new era, colleges and universities need to help learners master critical skills like problem-solving, collaboration, critical thinking, and the ability to continuously learn. In this talk, we will discuss the critical role of higher education and the value proposition they bring to the problem-solving generation.
