The Communique highlights the ‘wicked problems’ challenging education and training now and into the future.
These challenges require that we:
- Rethink what it means to teach, and reinvent everything about teaching
- Re-imagine online learning
- Allow failure to be as powerful a learning mode as success
- Make innovation part of the learning ethic
- Preserve the digital expressions of our culture and knowledge
NMC have put a call to action to all levels of education and training to work towards a fundamental shift in “how we think about teaching, learning, and the work of knowledge creation”.
To achieve this requires a better understanding of what these challenges mean to education and training, and how best to articulate them so we can plan to resolve them.
Although there are no ‘right answers’ to these challenges, the Designing Learning in the Digital Age Program (DLDA), starting in Melbourne on 13 March, will provide participants with the motivation to tackle these challenges for their own organisation, work group or industry.
To support NMC’s call to action, limited free places are being made available to attend the #DLDA program. Recipients of these free places must be available on 13 March, and be able to get to the Melbourne CBD, with no travel or accommodation funding available.
