I will be speaking at Algonquin College in Ottawa tomorrow and one of the main themes I will be discussing is how networks are changing our communications, work and education systems. It’s called The College in perpetual Beta:
One of the biggest hurdles facing organizations, and people working in them, is to stop thinking of hierarchies and start thinking of networks. In this “network era”, work is learning and learning is the work, but what does that mean for traditional education and our continuing professional development? How can we prepare students, staff and faculty for a world where we are simultaneously connected, mobile, and global; while conversely contractual, part-time, and local?
Algonquin College is the largest community college in Ontario with over 18,000 full-time and 35,000 part-time students.
