Social Validation, the End of the "Diploma Paradigm" - With Jef Staes

Date Friday, Nov 29  Time   –    Room Potsdam III

Today’s educational system rewards discipline and intelligence with a diploma. Because of this paralysing ‘design error’, passion for talents is not recognized nor rewarded. As a result, the world is moving to a new paradigm for the validation of competences. Competences of passionate and talented people will be ‘social validated’ by their learning and doing networks. This will kill the value of diploma’s. Welcome to the reinvention of ‘guilds’.
