THE FUTURE
OF EDUCATION

Some might say the world needs its educational institutions more, and less, than ever. Others might say that educators can either lead through this transformation – or be led out of it. Technology is shortening the lifespan of skills in the marketplace, turning the traditional meaning of the term “career outcomes” on its head – all while offering new methods, formats, and platforms, from which to learn.

Meanwhile, there has never been a more dire need for more adaptable, responsible, human-centric generations of global citizens. This marks a pivotal moment for the educational sector to reinvent itself and be the bedrock of a curious, prosperous society for all.
