Future of Education | Trends & Opportunities

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Englisch verfügbar.

One after the other, sectors of our life are being disrupted by technological, societal and political changes. It is, frankly, quite astonishing how little our education system has changed. Still nearly all schools, universities and executive education use the age-old model of one knowledge holder who transmits his knowledge to a group of listeners. With information often just one mouse-click away, this cannot be the most effective way to learn. Add the digital revolution, the expected rise of robotics and the innermost desire of people to have a meaningful career; it is evident something will (have to) change.


Are you somebody currently thinking about which further education might help you? Are you an educator? Or are you curious about innovative education models? Then join us on June 13 in Zürich for this inspiring evening about the #FutureOfEducation!
After an overview about trends in learning, we will hear from two creative new Swiss learning programs. The HR representative of a large corporation (TBC) will round off the evening by explaining the changing needs of employers and now learning plays a pivotal role in this.
