WITH BACK-TO-SCHOOL ON EVERYONE'S MINDS, WE'RE PUTTING OUR HEADS TOGETHER TO DISCUSS THE CHANGING FACE OF EDUCATION.
We're assembling a panel of Vancouver's most passionate educators to address issues associated with traditional methods of education, and our responsibility to tomorrow's graduates. With examples like the growing importance placed on co-op placements, flipped classrooms, and immediate application of knowledge, we'll be exploring what educating for the information age looks like.
Canada has the highest proportion of college graduates in the OECD. The Canadian Unviersity Survey (2018) says that 56% of students benefit from hands-on, experiential learning; however, 80% of employers recognise students who have had job-ready education as valuable potential future employees. With this gap between what universities see and what employers need, how can we bridge the skills gaps between the past, present, and future of experiential education?
