Show Notes

This edWeb podcast is hosted by edWeb.net.
The webinar recording can be accessed here.

In this edWeb podcast, Chris Dede and John Richards explore new models and strategies for lifelong learning in an era of profound economic disruption and invention. The presentation is based on their recently published book, The 60-Year Curriculum: New Models for Lifelong Learning in the Digital Economy, a compilation of the work of continuing educators and higher education institutions leading the way to better models for lifelong learning.

Over the next half-century, globalization, regional threats to sustainability, climate change, and technologies such as artificial intelligence and data mining will transform our education and workforce sectors. Higher education and adult training must shift to offer every student life-wide opportunities for the continuous upskilling they will need to achieve decades of worthwhile employability. Universities can increase learners’ trajectories across multiple careers from mid-adolescence to retirement spanning computer science, inclusive design, critical thinking, civics, and more.

This edWeb podcast is of interest to all stakeholders in education, workforce development, curriculum and instructional design, lifelong learning, higher education, and continuing education.
