In order to live happily and work successfully in the future information society, today’s young people need to acquire a variety of soft skills, not only academic knowledge! Because of this, more than 20 years into the 21st century, experts and policymakers are urging educational systems to start including the principles of competency-based education into knowledge-based traditional school curricula.
School curricula across the world have widely integrated what are popularly called the “4 Cs”, that is critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication. In contrast, the new 3Cs, i.e., cross-cultural understanding, career and life skills, and computing and digital literacy, have been gaining momentum only in recent years in response to the increasing population migration, the accelerating changes in the workforce, and the vigorous technological development.
This course will help you gain a systematic understanding of all the “7 Cs”, and of how you can integrate them into your teaching and school curricula. As a participant, you will explore the landscape of the employment and skills needed in this century, and critically discuss how it leads to the paradigm shifts in education. You will thus take part in the discussion and practical activities designed to help make your students acquire the fundamental skills that they will need to thrive in the 21st century.
By the end of the course, you will gain knowledge and confidence in leading changes in the curriculum, and taking actions to implement innovative pedagogies that align with the role of education in the 21st century. By instilling significant change in your students, you will be more able to prepare them for their future life.
