The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) will hold this year’s conference with a three pillar programme of ‘Co-Exist’, ‘Co-Create’ and ‘Learning to Live and Work Together’.
WISE summit 2017, a premier international education conference, will be held in Doha from November 14 to 16 with the participation of a large number of educationists and opinion makers from around the world. WISE is a global initiative of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development.
Just over two months to go for the biennial conference, WISE 2017 will address important education challenges in times of disruption and economic uncertainty stemming from conflict, mass migration, growing inequality, on-going, rapid technological change and other forces.
The 2017 WISE Summit will also be an opportunity to rethink and reorganise the way learning is delivered in an age of disruption.
Participants will explore and discover several topics that are shaping the future of teaching and learning including the impact of artificial intelligence on education, transforming roles of teachers and leveraging social entrepreneurship for innovation.
The summit will also have several discussions on changing mindsets toward migrants, reimagining higher education in the connected world, the impact of nudging, connecting private and public actors and strategies to build future knowledge societies.
Challenges in education also present opportunities to break down old assumptions and bring forth the new ideas that are paving the way for positive disruption.
With the topic of co-existing in a changing world, developing skills, attitudes and values to shape tomorrow, the conference will explore the role of innovation in education to cultivate values, behaviours and attitudes. It will address complex challenges, advance cultural cohesion and nurture global citizenship in the rapidly evolving world.
The second pillar of co-creating knowledge societies; transitioning from knowledge economies to knowledge societies, will examine strategies, policies and practices to empower individuals to become highly skillful innovators who can drive economic development, contribute to social good and design our future world.
The final pillar of the programme is learning to learn: New perspectives and practices in teaching and learning. It aims to discover new and emerging teaching and learning approaches that help learners develop relevant cognitive, social and emotional skills to live and work in an age of disruption.
WISE summit will highlight that the pace of scientific and technological development continues unabated. Constant advances in artificial intelligence, automation and biotechnology have the potential to dramatically overturn long-held assumptions about what it means to be human.
