We live in an exponential world. The rate of change and innovation is rapidly increasing each year, and consequently the task of preparing our students for the future becomes both challenging and exciting. A paradigm shift has occurred in business and innovation so that the old rules of institutions and business models no longer apply. GT Innovators explore this rapid pace of change and its implications for business and education.

In this 6-hour course, you will learn how you can “future proof” your students using strategies tailored for this era of exponential change. Topics explored include:

  • Activities for stimulating greater creativity in the classroom
  • How the “now” influences speculation about the future
  • Paradigm shift in teaching
  • What motivates students today
