“Quality Education” Episode 3: How World Events are Changing Education
14 January 2022
New Books in Education
Edited by Rosemary Sage and Riccarda Matteucci, "How World Events Are Changing Education", (Brill 2022)
Formal education became widespread only as recently as the end of the 19th century, as a way to train people for jobs created by the boom in industrialization. Today, with most of those jobs phasing out, world politics radically changing at both the individual and macro levels, diverse cultures and disciplines increasingly coming together as communities, and the pandemic catalyzing a global move to predominantly e-learning, it may be time for us to rethink formal education.
In this podcast, Dr. Rosemary Sage and Dr. Riccarda Matteucci discuss their book How World Events are Changing Education and talk about education in their day, what it has become for Gen Z, and lessons from pockets of the world where robots, online learning, and the science of human interest have been accounted for in education programs.
