Plenary Debate

Plenary Debate "This House Believes Universities, in Their Current Form, Are Unsustainable as Mass-participant Institutions"

Covid-19 has forced us to ask some fundamental questions about education and training. In the higher and vocational sectors, some experts want to make learning more needs-based, shifting the balance towards skills that are directly applicable to the workplace, leaving pure academic learning and research to a small number of brilliant minds. But is this the right approach?

Isn’t the flexibility and academic rigour of a traditional university education more relevant now than ever before? Aren’t the innovative steps universities now taking to introduce online learning exactly what e-learning experts always wanted? And should we be ‘throwing the baby out with the bath water’ at such a difficult time when universities contribute so much to so many economies? Or, on the contrary, is now exactly the right moment for fundamental reform? Is it time for consolidation in higher education or radical change?

Chaired by Paul Bacsich, Professor of Practice for the University of West Indies Open Campus and consultant at Matic Media Ltd, the Debate includes keynote speakers Brian Mulligan, founding member of the Irish Learning Technology Association and Manager of Online Learning Innovation at the Institute of Technology Sligo; Jane Bozarth, online training solutions specialist and author, The Learning Guild; Marie Cini, former president of the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) and Chief Strategy Officer at ED2WORK and; Donald Clark, blogger, VR and AI for learning specialist and consultant at Plan B Learning.

Join them at the annual OEB Debate on Dec 2 from 18:00 - 19:00 CET for a discussion about the fundamentals of education - and cast your vote online!
