How to prepare students for the complexity of a global society

Education & Skills TodayIn all countries, rapidly changing global economic, digital, cultural, and environmental forces are shaping young people’s lives and their futures. From Boston to Bangkok to Buenos Aires, we live today in a VUCA world: volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous.
The world’s growing complexity and diversity present both opportunity and challenge. On the one hand, globalization can bring important new perspectives, innovation, and improved living standards. But on the other, it can also contribute to economic inequality, social division, and conflict. More...

Apprendre par l'expérience et l'action - l'avenir de l'organisation et l'avenir de la formation

Résultat de recherche d'images pour

Nous recherchons une formule d'entraînement qui affecterait vraiment la pratique quotidienne. La formation des adultes se heurte à la nécessité de répondre à une question simple : cet investissement sera-t-il rentable dans la pratique ? Ce que les gens apprendront à leur sujet sera-t-il mis en pratique plus tard ? Mais cette question a un autre aspect : qu'il s'agisse uniquement des avantages actuels, ou encore de la préparation des destinataires adultes de formations à de nouvelles conditions économiques.

Are universities standing up to the rising nationalism around the world?

By Brendan O'Malley – Managing Editor. University World News was the media partner for a conference on New Nationalism and Universities held at the University of California, Berkeley in the United States in November. In a Special Report on the conference, we cover a presentation by John Douglass in which he asks whether universities are challenging or reinforcing the existing political order as nationalism rises across the globe. In her presentation, UC Berkeley Chancellor Carol Christ shared her view that the ‘alt-right’ was testing US universities on free speech as part of a narrative to discredit them. A presentation on Brexit looked at the stakes for UK universities in the upcoming Brexit negotiations but also how they could respond to the drivers of the vote for Brexit. Marcelo Knobel and Renato HL Pedrosa write about the rising violence and threats associated with recent student protests in Brazil, a topic covered at the conference.
   In a second Special Report on digitalised credentials, Herman de Leeuw and Stig Arne Skjerven hail the technological advances that could be a game changer in educational qualification verification and moving towards digital student portability, while Saha Al-Nahi explains how new blockchain technology, which allows academic records to be secured and accessed from any location, could help refugees in particular.
   In Commentary, Emiliano Bosio shares the benefits of transformative global citizenship education, which assists young people in acquiring social, civic and global-intercultural aptitudes. Chau-Duong Quang says Vietnam’s private higher education institutions are increasingly likely to be in the hands of corporations not educators. And Teboho Moja discusses the role of science granting councils in Africa, which she argues sit at the intersection between governments, the higher education sector and society, and have a crucial role to play in the transformation of society.
   In World Blog this week, Patrick Blessinger, Jaimie Hoffman and Mandla Makhanya discuss the need for change and the tensions of change in ensuring a culture of inclusion in higher education.
   In Features, Geoff Maslen unpacks an OECD report on science and technology, which states that new digital technologies are enabling a future of ‘smart everything’ that will require changes in science and innovation policy. And Christabel Ligami considers the impact on female students of the lack of sexual harassment policies at Kenyan universities – a situation which is slowly being addressed.
   In a Special Report from the Inyathelo Ninth Leadership Retreat held in South Africa, Mark Paterson looks at how the practice of advancement – the practice of raising funds as part of efforts to effect institutional transformation – is improving governance and leadership. And Karen MacGregor reports on the analysis of Dr Bhekinkosi Moyo, CEO of the Southern Africa Trust, of the extraordinary growth in philanthropy in African universities. More...

Comment mieux articuler vie professionnelle et vie privée ?

Focus RH - Gestion de carrière et évolution professionnellePour pouvoir se maitriser, savoir où on va, redonner du sens à ce que l'on fait au quotidien. L'idée est de faire une vraie parenthèse grâce à la formation. Pour les responsable RH, il s'agit d'offrir la possibilité aux collaborateurs de se poser les vraies questions sur leurs valeurs, sur ce qui a du sens pour eux et de sortir de ce mode automatique du quotidien qui, finalement, ne procure plus aucun plaisir et peut générer du stress. Plus...

To build a better skills system we need a strong core

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "http://www.hepi.ac.uk/"Many of the people heading to the gym at this time of year will be told that developing a strong core is key to maintaining good physical fitness. It’s the core muscles that stabilise the whole body. I would argue that the same principle applies to technical education. Without a strong core of qualifications at the mid-level – in education terminology, that’s levels 4 and 5 – we will always struggle to develop good technical education at both the top and the bottom of the system. Without a strong core, students enrolling on courses at levels 2 and 3 will find their route of progression blocked. More...

Now students pay thousands, firsts are on the rise

The Guardian homeMany proud academics must have spluttered over their morning coffee in the senior common room to learn that a first-class degree, once as rare as hen’s teeth, is now more akin to a hen’s egg: we can all have one for breakfast, it seems, if we can only be bothered to go out to collect it.

Expérience, transformation de soi, construction du moi, affirmation du je

The ConversationUne culture de pensée relativement partagée aujourd’hui, présente aussi bien dans le monde académique que dans le monde professionnel, tend à privilégier l’énoncé de postures « constructivistes », faisant de la construction des activités et de la construction des sujets par et dans les activités des constructions conjointes.
