    Lecture: The Implications of a Global Education

    40 Rector Street, 2nd Floor - New York City, China Institute

    Over the past few decades, important economic, demographic, social and political changes worldwide have led to increased uncertainty in how countries and individuals remain competitive. Fuelled by rapid technological advancements, global shifts in consumer preferences, and the swiftly transforming nature of work, this uncertainty is arriving at an accelerated speed with exacerbated impacts. In light of such dynamics, a rethinking of education, and its role in society and relevant objectives, are much needed. At this lecture, Ji Liu of Columbia University will use empirical data to illustrate how skill demands are changing globally, identify their relevant consequences on education systems, and connect these shifts with examples from the Republican era in China to shed light on what global education meant then, and may mean today.

    This Lecture will be conducted in Chinese, with no interpretation. Free, but advance registration is requested. You can register here.
