It’s a challenge for schools, universities and professional education to keep up with the demands of rapid change, in technology, business and society.
This DLD Munich session asks how the state and the private sector can collaborate more effectively to push transformation in school, academic and professional education alike.
The expert panel is moderated by Jeanne Rubner, Vice-President Global Communication and Public Engagement at Technical University Munich.
It brings together Bettina Stark-Watzinger, German Federal Minister of Education and Research; Fabiana Bertram, Learning Science Specialist at game-based learning company Level Ex; Felix Ohswald, Founder & CEO of the peer-to-peer learning platform, and Austrian unicorn, GoStudent; and Michael John Gorman, Founding Director of Munich’s new life sciences museum Biotopia.
