EDUCATION OF THE FUTURE: ALTERNATIVES AND OPPORTUNITIES

15:00-16:15 Pavilion G, Conference Hall G7
The coming decades will be an era of unprecedented change in the world of education. A new global education architecture will emerge. The convergence of academic and technological environments, opportunities for mixed forms of training, and earlier vocational orientation towards new industries are just some of the trends shaping the future of education. A significant number of the breakthrough solutions in this area are being provided not by traditional academic institutions, but instead by new players on the education market: finance and technology companies, scientific associations, and exciting private initiatives. A new transnational market is taking shape, and may soon enough become a notable competitor to traditional educational institutions, transforming education markets and changing the rules of the game. What will education look like in 5–10 years’ time? How will new technologies transform traditional formats? How much will the role of business in the development of this sector grow?

Highlights

Higher education is the tool that shapes the quality of human assets.

Anastasia Butrym
Director, British Higher School of Art and Design

Professors need to be flexible by being involved not just in theory but also in practice.

Professor, Head of Acting Program, California State University, Fullerton; Actress

For any industry, a foundation is necessary: the fundamentals should be taught.

Svetlana Efremova
Professor, Head of Acting Program, California State University, Fullerton; Actress

You need to study all the time: the fundamentals, and on top of it, constant improvement.

Svetlana Efremova

Geography tells us about space, history tells us about time, and science and culture make up the contents of space and time. This is the school I presented. A complex, wavelike, associative way of thinking.

Mikhail Kazinik
Violinist, Lecturer of Music, Art Historian, Poet

The moment a child is educated – that is, when a worldview and thinking paradigm have been established – it becomes possible to advance in a given skill.

Mikhail Kazinik
Violinist, Lecturer of Music, Art Historian, Poet

The future of higher education should be needs-driven, should use authentic learning and extensive technologies, and we should also teach students how to study anytime and anywhere.

Lueny Morell
Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Lueny Morell & Associates; Director, InnovaHiEd

Higher education is a key societal asset. The tasks it should fulfil are to learn the facts, learn how to learn, how to think and how to create something new.

Mats Nordlund
Director, Innovation Advisory Partners

The model of changes in higher education can be represented by simple logical reasoning: if we put education into a transformation engine, its functions will change their signs. And it might so happen that, in some twenty years, there will be no point in higher education anymore, and all its functions will be served by other agents more quickly, more cheaply and more effectively.

Dmitry Peskov
Director, Young Professionals Department, Agency for Strategic Initiatives to Promote New Projects (Agency for Strategic Initiatives)

The issue of retraining and adaptation of graduates to actual jobs is often solved by companies at their own expense. The market responds by creating the alternative education sector.

Sergey Solonin
General Director, FINTECH Association

The new education system should be based on a system of ratings.

Sergey Solonin
General Director, FINTECH Association
