Dr Joseph Haldane, IAFOR Chairman and CEO, has been leading the IAFOR collaboration in the ongoing international education project that aims to reimagine education, by bringing together many stakeholders in the public and private sector.
Many educators and employers agree there’s a disconnect between the skills today’s workers need on the job and what students are taught in school.
It’s a complex problem that touches on K-12, higher education, and industry. While finding solutions won’t be easy, a group of more than 60 leaders from education and workforce development are looking to make headway.
In an unusually broad and comprehensive effort led by the Virginia Tech Calhoun Center for Higher Education Innovation, IAFOR (The International Academic Forum), and the Future Talent Council, extensive research was conducted into innovative programs that are making an impact, leaders from those programs were engaged, and recommendations on new ways to improve educational practices worldwide have been compiled.
