Technology is Accelerating: How Can Educators Prepare Engineers for the Future - A Live Webinar

About the Session

As defined by world leaders at the World Economic Forum, we are now in a 4th Industrial Revolution, where technologies in the cloud are accelerating at a dizzying pace. These technologies, including AI, Machine Learning, and Quantum Computing, are digitally transforming the world. Startups have the ability to disrupt big companies more easily. Big companies want to digitally transform to improve their business, and innovate in new ways to gain more revenue and profit. Because the new technologies are evolving at exponential rates and they are transforming ways of working (e.g., systems, processes, and tools), people need to continuously be upskilled every 3-6 months. Companies, government, and non-profits are scrambling to find ways to keep current employees up-to-date, and to teach others skills so that they have a viable employee pipeline for the future. No one wants to fall behind in this technology race. Efforts are underway and need to be explored at company levels, national levels (ReWork America), and global levels (United Nations and World Economic Forum). The implications for educators are becoming clear – how do we keep up with the technologies, their applications, and provide skills that complement the technologies as they evolve? Faster, better, and cheaper ways of upskilling individuals are vital. Stackable credentials are becoming a norm, and they are becoming as important, if not more important, than degrees. This session will explore the 4th industrial revolution in a global world, the need for speedy upskilling, and the implications for educators.
