Reimagining education across continents

The traditional model of higher education is increasingly less sustainable and relevant to today’s changing world. There is a growing disconnect between what students learn and the actual skills they will need in the future. Universities worldwide are struggling with bridging this skills gap. Arguably, the way forward is to develop new models of higher education that are more relevant to the 21st century. This session looks at how three universities across three continents have done just that.
