    Preparing students for uncertainty and complexity

    Snowden, 2005

    Analyse, plan & predict

    Agile, experiment, let go and just do it; then analyse and learn

    Moderador Notas de la presentación Explain here, how in this new highly networked society and during the transition where we still get rid of the centralisation of the Information Age, the complexity is increasing. In this new world the speed of change is much faster than the rate of learning, and therefore education institutions need to train students to experiment in this highly changing environments and complex frameworks where foundational literacies are not all they need. It is important for them to develop the character qualities that will allow them to adapt to rapid change and operate inside of complexity (resilience, curiosity, leadership, ethics, social awareness, adaptability)

    Moderador Notas de la presentación How to mix all the ingredients regarding our educational vision in the framework of a curriculum? Some examples…explain the different lines. Explain the PD credits embedded in the curriculum regarding career counseling. Explain here the traditional views of knowledge and how we incorporate the other views regarding PPP. Also explain the possibility to incorporate MOOCs so students who need support or even an extra, could complete their curriculum with extra MOOC or other courses. Free credits at the end of each semester, with complete freedom for students to build in their personal and interpersonal skills. Coordinated by career counsellors with the collaboration with different lectures. At the end of the 3 weeks we organize a big showcase of all the learnings from students and presentation of the different activities they have done.

    Individual choice and interest of students

    Thesis and Reflection

    Moderador Notas de la presentación Year 3 and 4 is the playground where students have more freedom and flexibility to customize their own learning journey and apply all the learnings from year 1 and 2. Although first 2 years have loads of experiential learning and innovative texting, it is more focus on knowledge as goal also because all universities need to meet the burocratic criteria of learning objectives, indicators, etc. Here, in the last years, we want to set students in the environment for the transition from knowledge as goal to knowledge as tool.

    The challenge for education

    Moderador Notas de la presentación Here we explain how in WHC, and specially in the concept of VC we want to focus in the transition from foundational literacies and competences towards the development of character qualities, how students approach complexity but also how they approach their changing environment. Explain how different reports of WEF point out that educational institutions need this transition because these qualities are becoming more relevant than ever and will be even become the pre-requisite to acquire the foundational literacies and competences that are needed to address complexity and the challenges ahead them. Traditionally, education focused mainly in the foundational literacies attached to each bachelor or speciality, also because most of them are measurable via traditional forms of examination. We wanted to shift the focus towards the last columns of the framework, not measuring the qualities they develop but focusing in how the students perform during the process and how they also experience their own personal and interpersonal growth regarding these competences (self-assessment). Use some of the quotes I have in my article om how important and necessary this shift is. Reference to the BIAC report, and other scholars that warn education about the need to allow students to develop these interpersonal skills or meta competences. Why is this necessary? Why are these skills (which are not really new) are becoming more relevant than ever? (Linking to next slide)…..Because the world is becoming more complex than before and also the structure of the world systems is changing towards a more networked society….

    Working inside a network


    IMAGINATION AGE (New form of society and economy) Focus on people, economic growth as a mean, not a goal, collaboration human-




    Moderador Notas de la presentación The network society has become an important tool that could help us in the transition from the Centralised stagnation of the Information Age towards a new more sustainable world, with new forms of societies and economies that could take us to what some already label as a new age for human kind, the Imagination Age. But networks as are well complex, so how do we work inside of a network and address complexity in an effective, and also efficient way? How can we understand what look already like wicked networks by looking closely? Networks are made of people!! Personal and interpersonal skills are key in engaging and understandting networks. We need to use the network society and its possibilities for collaboration to make that transition towards the imagination age possible. Why? Because humans will have to co-work and live with new forms of AI. We need to start teaching using networks as tools for the transition towards a new Imagination Age, that facilitates a more sustainable form of global society.
