Roundtable World Café Session / Panel 5: Assuring today’s learning outcomes meet tomorrow’s employment opportunities

Focus: We live in a changing world where technology is able to rapidly replace humans, yet curriculum reviews and compliance cycles are typically done every few years – which means the curriculum can be slow to react to changes in the real world. How do we develop a flexible and responsive curriculum and assessment system that can ensure that students will not only be able to meet today’s compliance standards and immediate employment opportunities, but also be ready for new and yet undefined roles in a globalised and instantaneous new world?
