The Spotlight Stage SPL06

OEB Spotlight Stage: The Why, How and What of Private Higher Education Initiatives: Skillful Visions

Date Thursday, Dec 7  Time   –    Room Potsdam 3

In this session on the Stage you will hear from two founders about their motivation to reinvent traditional university experiences, pedagogy, curricular pathways and more. Their successful higher education start-ups have clear views on how rich educational experiences can be offered to learners and what skills are needed for success in our rapidly-evolving, interconnected world. With many traditional institutions under extreme financial pressure how can ALL learners benefit from the science behind their initiatives? Are there trade-offs to their approaches? Join us for inspiration and conversation!
