Cultivating Core Competences in a Changing Technological Society
21st century observes societal reforms that leap forward at fullest speed in human history. It also witnesses technology revolutions that push back mankind boundaries on a daily basis. In this rapid changing era, education itself is facing various grand challenges, one of which is raised by the question of what kind of students we wish to prepare for the future, especially the core competences we are obligated to cultivate in our students in response to the quick and convenient ways of grasping knowledge, thanks to new technologies. During the INEI 2018 symposium at BNU, scholars from different countries will get together and discuss what the core competences in a changing technological society are, and as educators, in what ways we should cultivate them.
