Faculty Forward, a Whiting School of Engineering, Engineering for Professionals program funded by the JHU DELTA Grant Initiative, presents "What is the Future of Learning? Visions of Education in Our Changing Learning World!" with keynote speaker Curtis Bonk. The event is from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, June 7, at Mount Washington Conference Center's Pullen Plaza.
These days seem ripe for gazing into a crystal ball and pondering what human learning will look like five, 10, or even 25 or more years into the future. How will we learn? Where will we be learning? And who, if anyone, will we be learning with? It's time to put away those crystal balls, magic lamps, and astrology charts for a moment and listen in as Curt Bonk details his visions of the future of learning.
We all have witnessed the numerous ways learning has been changing during the past few years—it is more open, flipped, mobile, global, online, blended, massive, visual, gamelike, immersive, digital, free, tactile, modifiable, comfortable, adventurous, and perhaps even more personal—but that is just a brief glimpse of what the exciting adventure known as human learning will look like in the decades to come.
In this talk, Bonk will offer his predictions of the future of learning as influenced by innovations in learning technology, instructional approaches, and the spaces and places for learning to occur. Learning is changing. It's time to join the movement!
Please join us for appetizers and drinks at this exciting keynote on the future of learning. In addition, the DELTA Grant/Faculty Forward team will introduce the program and its inaugural participants.
Light refreshments will be served. All faculty and staff are welcome to attend the reception and keynote. Tickets are required! Register online no later than June 5.
