President Mo Qayoumi spoke today (April 28th) at the Online Cisco Virtual Forum for Education Leaders. The event theme was The Connected Learning Society: Inspire, Engage, and Empower . In his presentation titled, “Fusing Tradition and Transformation to Achieve a Learning Society”, Qayoumi discussed how 21st century technology provides a platform for creating a learning society.

“Higher education has a tremendous opportunity to look at the current landscape and evaluate how to change its approach,” said Qayoumi.

He said that higher education should concentrate on three approaches:

  1. How to use new teaching and learning methodologies
  2. How to accommodate a wider mixture of learning providers
  3. How to remove barriers between formal education and informal learning
