Feedback form is now closed.
Post-secondary faculty and leaders are facing increasing pressure to change the way higher education is designed in order to address changing and expanding societal expectations and disruption. Examples include:
  • graduates that are ready for the workforce of tomorrow;
  • schools that do more to engage students and ensure that they learn more and better;
  • curriculum that addresses the right balance of hard technical skills and human or soft skills;
  • as well as many other demands including the integration of technology and the digital world into every aspect of the educational experience.
But who decides? In this session, we will focus on the role of the many stakeholders that seek to influence the design and construction of what and how our institutions teach.
Key takeaways from this session include:
·         an examination of forces for change and evolving societal expectations;
·         theories/frameworks that may help to clarify decision-making; and
·         a list of critical questions related to future curriculum and program decisions.
