Education Summit

Saturday, 19 October, 2019

The School of Education will host an Education Summit bringing together a group of thought leaders representing different disciplines so we can begin the process of rethinking literacies and learning for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). The summit will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, in the Pere Marquette Gallery, DuBourg Hall.

Summit Details

Given the advent of technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, and rising rates of mental health issues, it is imperative we begin to rethink what it means to “educate” our youth. What will be the role of teachers in the age of AI and machine learning and in the face of the mental health epidemic? Will it be to deliver “content knowledge” only, when knowledge is a keystroke away or will it be to facilitate “learning” so students can flourish and use their creativity and imagination to utilize the “tools” of Fourth Industrial Revolution for human flourishing?

Panel Discussion topics include the impact of AI, machine learning and other technologies of 4IR on teaching and learning, and well-being literacy for 4IR.

Margie Vandeven, Ph.D. (ED Grad ’14), SLU alumna and Missouri education commissioner will serve as a panelist at the event.

This event is free and open to public. Breakfast and lunch provided.
