Those who see this pandemic as an opportunity to pause and really prioritize what sorts of scientific and tech advances should be done, Webb says, will move forward and will be OK at the end. On the other hand, she says, those who oppose the fact that the future will now look different than originally envisioned will have a much more difficult time adapting.

 

What’s Next? Preparing for Future Pandemics
In the last ten years, the world has faced numerous pandemics, including Ebola, Zika, and Chikungunya. Meanwhile, scientists and policymakers continue to work against persistent infectious diseases like HIV and Tuberculosis. With globalization ever increasing, the threat of emerging and re-emerging pandemic diseases continues to rise. As the United States has played a significant role in curbing these outbreaks, it can draw on important lessons learned to prepare for the next pandemic.

The future of infectious diseases. | Paul Cosford | TEDxUoChester
In the late 20th century the predominant view was that the age of infectious diseases was over, that new technologies had won the battle. That turned out not to be the case. This talk draws on historical and modern examples where new technologies, rather than being seen as vital additions to help fight infection, are thought to replace everything else we need to do. As a result, they have sometimes set back rather than enhanced the control of infectious diseases, at least for a time. It is argued that this is entirely avoidable, that hugely important breakthroughs such as genetic sequencing of micro-organisms, must go hand in hand with continued action on the social and behavioural drivers of infection to achieve the greatest benefit. Like so many aspects of modern life, the future of infectious disease control lies in essential new discoveries alongside a continued understanding of our basic humanity.

Future Directions for Higher Education in Africa
Africa is going through a demographic boom with the continent’s population expected to double by 2050. There is a rising middle class which has different spending habits and desires. Almost all African countries are rapidly urbanizing. Many Sub-Saharan African countries are on their way to becoming middle-income countries as defined by the World Bank. As a result of the changing landscape in Africa, demand for higher education has skyrocketed. Many public school systems are poorly funded and are not able to provide quality education to their growing populations.

The Future of Universities in a Block Chain World | Diane Sieber | TEDxBoulder
Universities have been central to intellectual and creative discourse for a millennium, and yet during the last two decades, powerful economic, technological and social forces have increasingly challenged their survival. Professor Diane Sieber argues that the future of the university may look very much like its origin: decentralized, just-in-time learning with flexible curricula and outcomes-based rather than credit-hour-based credentialing. In the near future, block chain technology will allow learners to design a personalized education that constellates inexpensive online resources and experiences, and to connect directly with employers through smart contracts. Universities that can adapt quickly will weather this change; others will collapse in the face of accelerating technologies and less expensive alternatives.

Universities and the future of innovation | Ekateryna Nova | TEDxTerryTalks
Ekateryna Nova talks about how the current education system fails to reflect new research on what fosters innovation and creativity in schools. According to Nova, scientific and technological advances are driven by people with a broad range of interests – like biologists that study history or engineers that study art. However, while working on a project linking innovation economics with British Columbia’s attitudes towards multidisciplinary studies, Nova found that the current system actually hindered collaboration between disciplines rather than promote it. In her TEDx talk, Nova talks about how this attitude is not only damaging the potential for innovation, but also works in contrast to career projections of modern times – where an individual is expected to switch careers up to 7 times in their life time.

The Future of Higher Education
Universities play a vital role in our world. They prepare students to compete for high-quality jobs, drive economic growth, produce innovative and life-saving research, and nurture an enlightened and generous citizenry. However, our universities are under significant pressure. There is a perception that tuition costs are out of reach to many and students are forced to accumulate a staggering amount of debt. Technology is creating disruptive educational models that have led to increased competition. The president and the secretary of education have called for an effort to quantify the value of a college degree, including government ranking schools based upon such metrics as accelerated graduation rates, higher percentages of graduates employed, enhanced access and affordability. Distinguished university presidents from public, private and community institutions join a key Department of Education leader to discuss how these challenges are being addressed.

The Future of Higher Education
The technology revolution of the 21st Century is disrupting the workforce at a dizzying speed, throwing into question the value of traditional post-secondary education. Universities and corporations are being forced to go beyond incremental reforms. They are having to totally re-envision the education process and how it prepares students and workers of all ages to compete for jobs of today and the future. University heads and education business leaders will strategize how to revolutionize what, when, and where we learn.
