Target Audience(s): Senior Leaders, Decision Makers
Short Session Description (one line): Positive Education Curriculum
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): We often hear about 21st -century learners and the knowledge and skills our students need for the future. What about teachers? What skills will 21st -century teachers need to prepare our students? How are they different from the skills teachers needed in the past? The quality of education has significantly changed in the past years. Previously, the university’s key aim was that of providing students with certain types of knowledge that they were expected to apply later, but today universities focuses primarily on ‘life skills’. Our aim is to teach students to obtain knowledge by themselves and to work in ways that enable them to come up with new ideas. Generating new ideas is a key tenet of modern society. We need professionals who are culturally competent, talented, innovative and creative problem-solvers, skilled and critical thinkers. New technologies give an opportunity to encourage critical thinking
