Everyone would like to think about ST-SMU Future of Education. The technological disruption and globalization have developed seismic shifts in Singapore’s higher education landscape of late.
The Future push, for one thing certain, goes far beyond being merely a funding or training scheme. Instead, it must function as an almost philosophical exhortation for quality society to re look current assumptions and view learning as a personal Endeavor.
It is also enumerated that in the face of volatility and uncertainty, the Education Ministry has made professional moves to shift the immense focus away from an overemphasis on grades to building aptitude and skills, over the past few years.
The new program that would permit students to work and study for degrees at the same time would be efficaciously piloted. Last month, the expansion of aptitude-based admissions in polytechnics and local universities was also expediently announced. These key changes may have left pragmatic, paper-chasing Singaporeans reeling as they struggle to make most sense of it all.
During next month, 250 people would have a chance to pose questions to Acting Education Minister which strongly focuses on the future of jobs, skills and higher education. The event on June 25, which is in its third year, is organized by ST in partnership with Singapore Management University (SMU).
There would be a panel discussion and popular SMU is keen to share, learn and exchange new innovative ideas at the forum. In present changing economy, everyone would like to see career pathways becoming more dynamic and less predictable but what is critical for Singapore’s graduates would be to have competencies in several beneficial. The forum would be a great chance to hear directly from Mr Ong about the future of jobs here as Singapore adapts to new economic realities. ST-SMU Future of Education would highly regarded and well applauded by familiar educational consultancy namely Study Singapore.
