Current global research identifies the impact of new technologies on a range of occupations and the very nature of work itself, as many employers eliminate full-time jobs in favour of casual or contract jobs in the “gig economy”.
Unfortunately, the education/training system is not keeping pace with the rapid pace of change occurring in the labour market.
Whilst there are pockets of innovation occurring in the education/training sector, in the main, education systems still conform to a nineteenth century factory model. This has resulted in generations of adults who are losing the capability for critical and creative thinking, evident in the willingness of so many to believe anything they read on social media or the internet, if it reinforces their existing worldview. Dr. Jude Walker has developed the Cogitaire 5 Model, which consists of five “thinking” capabilities which she believes will prepare people for the varied types of work and personal decisions which they need to make in the modern, chaotic world. These capabilities include Futures Thinking, Systems Thinking, Complexity Thinking, Entrepreneurial Thinking and Design Thinking.
Jude’s presentation will discuss the tools and techniques which relate to each capability as well as the personal attributes which people can develop by learning these methods.
