The 21st Century Global Workforce

As noted on Moodle, in our class tomorrow, we will proceed with the discussion on North Korea with Dr Moon Chung In, but postpone our exchange with veteran journalist Shim Jae Hoon until next week, 13 February. After our discussion with Dr Moon, we will discuss talent and skills training in the global economy, with a focus on India and China. Our guest for the latter third of the class will be Dr David Finegold, the Senior Vice President for Lifelong Learning and Strategic Growth Initiatives at Rutgers University in New Jersey, USA. I have uploaded to Moodle a Powerpoint presentation that Dr Finegold has prepared as well as a report and an article prepared by him and some colleagues. If you have time before class, please do go over the material. Here are two video clips featuring Dr Finegold:

    Skills are important, but it is creativity that drives humanity forward! 🙂 Check out this short (and funny!) talk by Sir Ken Robinson (http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html). He “champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.”
