Academic Impressions Webcast: The Future of Work and the Academy

Hear a compelling case for why the traditional transfer of knowledge and skills in higher education is no longer enough.

Rapid advances in technology may render as much as half of our current workforce replaceable by automation in the next 10 years. With so much change on the horizon, how can we prepare young people for jobs, problems, and technology we don’t yet understand?

Join us online for a provocative discussion on these issues with Future of Work consultant, Heather McGowan, and UMass Dartmouth Chancellor, Robert E Johnson. This 60-minute broadcast will encourage your team to think about education differently—not as a simple transfer of knowledge and skills that ends with a degree, but as a chance to instill a mindset of lifelong learning that will help our students futureproof themselves from constant change.
