THE FUTURE MIND – INTERDISCIPLINARY EDUCATION TO COMPETE

10:00-11:15 Pavilion 8, Conference Hall 8.2
The digital age has revolutionized business, reshaped democracy, and is a vital tool in eliminating poverty and addressing disease. Yet global education systems are still largely based on disciplines founded at the start of the industrial age in the 1850s.
How can the disciplines of design, engineering, business, and liberal arts be better integrated into a curriculum that leads to students cultivating the reasoning and technical skills needed to compete in the modern era?

Highlights

The role of the teacher is not going to be eliminated. It’s just going to be transformed… more like Socratic teaching, more like a dialogue rather than a dissemination of information.

Daphne Koller
Professor, Stanford University

Education can be adapted to serve society and the economy as it develops.

Evgeny Kuznetsov
Director of Department of Strategic Communications, RVC

The modern rector’s job is to ensure that an institution of higher education possesses a independently thinking research group and professors who simply don’t follow strict guidelines but pursue what they want. м
