The world is rapidly changing due to globalization and rapid technological advances, and as a result, the economic, cultural, political, and ethnic landscape is shifting under our very feet. The traditional educational pathways to success no longer seem to be working: there is a global talent shortage at the same time that we are seeing the rise of massive youth unemployment and unemployed, underemployed, and underpaid college graduates. To prepare our students to be successful in this new world, what shifts need to happen to the current educational paradigm? What skillsets are necessary for our children to be able to create a more peaceful, sustainable, and just world? Join Dr. Yong Zhao, world renowned speaker, thinker, and author, to explore these questions. He is Foundation Distinguished Professor in the School of Education at the University of Kansas and has published over 100 articles and 30 books, including Counting What Counts: Reframing Education Outcomes(2016) and World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Students (2012).
Presentation followed by a Q&A with Dr. Yong Zhao.
