The question of what’s next in education often comes to forefront as times change and technology advances. On April 21, that question will be the focus again as TEDxOrlando presents a salon event focused on the future of education.
Dr. Laura Ross, vice president of Academic Affairs, will represent Seminole State in a panel discussion with the theme, “The Intersection of Education and Innovation.” She will join other thought leaders from local colleges and universities in answering questions about the forward-thinking techniques that prepare students for work, technology in the classroom and the development of the soft skills employers demand.
A video, The Future of Education, will open the discussion. Attendees will also have an opportunity to ask questions sparked by the topic. Those who attend from Seminole State are encouraged to show their school spirit by wearing blue and gold and/or College-branded gear.
