Nordic Talks: The Future of Learning

Event Date and Time: 
Wednesday, September 14, 2022 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

What does it mean to engage in ongoing, life-long learning? How have changes in technology, behaviour, and attitudes toward work-life balance impacted the pursuit of academic, professional or personal growth? Can virtual learning replicate the outcomes of in-person learning or even exceed them? How will calling for increased accountability and authenticity in teaching and access for all change how we navigate knowledge exchange systems? In this Nordic Talk, we explore what the future of adult learning could, should or would look like if our panelists had their say.
