Education, Megatrends and Resilience: Preparing for the Future

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


This paper explores ways to build resilience ensuring continuation of education at times when teachers, learners and institutions face global disruptions. The framework employed for the paper draws from multidisciplinary studies in the megatrends in global economy (CSIRO, 2022). Megatrends determine the way we study, live and work, and they look into the future world we will have to adapt to. The last (nearly) three years of the COVID19 pandemic have had an overwhelming and often disastrous impact on the way education has been delivered across the globe. Institutions everywhere were mostly unprepared for the consequences of the pandemic, but knowing global megatrends, they can position themselves to address future uncertainties. The paper discusses that and concludes with suggestions for building institutional and educational resilience preparing us for the next inevitable historic disruption.
