Event Description

In recent decades, technological advancements have paved the way to the industrial revolution 4.0, which will significantly reshape the landscape of work and essential work skills needed in the future. In tomorrow’s complex, ambiguous, and agile world, learning needs to be interdisciplinary, competency-based, personalized, human-centered, and be seen as a lifelong endeavor for individuals at every stage of their career. Can the current higher education model provide the necessary learning experience to prepare future graduates for such a changing and unprecedented world?

Throughout this Symposium, scholars, educators, practitioners, industry leaders, and students will look into the essential components of higher education pedagogies and curricula. We will be envisioning the future of education, unveiling emerging and innovative practices, and co-creating tomorrow’s education for future-proof graduates together.
