Enhancing Generational Knowledge using a 21st Century Curriculum Model

Session Description
This presentation discusses a paradigm shift that transforms educators into Edupreneurs who provide personalized learning to meet evolving generational needs.

The delivery of online degree programs within higher education is continuously evolving and becoming more efficient as technological and curriculum design factors merge to enhance learning effectiveness. The advance of technology challenges the modification of learning habits of future generations; the era of sitting in front of a computer to engage stale eLearning curriculum designed for the masses has run its course. The ability to take short courses via mobile technology has made eLearning-on-the-go a reality. Virtual reality will soon usher in a new learning environment in which students will attend school. In the very near future, artificial intelligence will become the teacher’s assistant and may even replace the role of an educator as we know it today! It is important to establish a presence and build sustainable businesses that attract generations of the future.
