The future of learning is upon us. How well are universities responding to the changing world students face? How relevant are today’s educational programs for tomorrow’s challenges? How can we ensure universities serve the needs of students? How must universities evolve to ensure their approach to educating is contemporary, fulfilling, and relevant?
Marina Kim, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Ashoka U, speaks to these important questions during the SFU Vancouver Speaker Series. After her presentation, Kris Magnusson, Dean of Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Education joins Marina in a discussion on the role that universities must play in ensuring their graduates have the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to succeed in a world characterized by economic, social, and environmental upheaval. Audience members are encouraged to pose their own questions about the future of learning (and educating) to the presenters during a Q&A period. After the event, stay for a networking reception with light refreshments and a cash bar.
This informative and provocative presentation marks the launch of SFU Vancouver’s Open Learning Week. and is presented by SFU Vancouver in partnership with SFU Public Square and SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement.
