About this event

Many of us are on career paths that have held tertiary qualifications as a prerequisite, and the central teaching tool for obtaining these qualifications has been sitting in a lecture theatre, absorbing the knowledge and teachings of a highly educated academic.

There's no argument that higher education continues to change at a rapid pace. Yet even though a college education still drives future earning potential, some of the most in-demand jobs today favour a more vocational education over a formal degree.

Now, General Assembly, in partnership with Disruptive Business Network, is questioning the importance and effect of this traditional teaching style.

While some will say it’s easy to point to examples of disruption in the education industry, the broader data sometimes paints a very different picture.

With practical education institutions like General Assembly and The School of Life as well as the popularity of MOOCS (Massive Open Online Courses), we are in the midst of an exciting time in higher education.
