IdeaFest Interactive Discussion, Part 1: “The Future of Education”

Education and work are ever-changing, yet the need to prepare students for their future remains constant. With new learning platforms, models, and approaches, educators and faculty members know they need to shift their teaching and learning practices. School and university leaders need to recalibrate what type of graduates they are producing and how prepared they are for their future. With each new innovation in education comes the opportunity for more equitable and global learning experiences and increased access to all K12 and Higher Education students around the world. This interactive discussion will bring the audience and panelists together to pose and answer questions about the direction of education and work.

IdeaFest Panel Discussion: “Women, Leadership, & Entrepreneurial Learning Solutions”
The high costs of student disengagement, attrition, and debt create an imperative for immediate, effective and sustainable changes in how we teach and learn. Come hear how four visionary women in education are creating, funding and scaling entrepreneurial solutions. Our panelists include thought leaders – academics, practitioners, and entrepreneurs – from K-12 public education, private higher education, non-profit organizations, and private industry. We will explore how these new entrepreneurial approaches can help prepare 21st century students and the leaders we need for the future’s opportunity-rich and dynamic global environment.
