Why we need to reimagine education?
The time is right to identify innovative learning solutions emerging around the world, whether globally relevant, or adapted to local needs. The current pedagogical approaches are insufficient for preparing the billions of students pursuing higher education globally as well as the type of leaders, entrepreneurs, and thinkers that we need for the future.
The rising cost of traditional education is another incentive for change. So are the enormous advances in technology that allow, the customization of education to individual learning styles, group learning, online interactivity, gaming and real-time employer projects.
With knowledge at the heart of modern economic competitiveness and individual career success, steps must be taken to ensure that higher education equally benefits the intellect, cultural literacy and career-readiness of its students.
