Transformational Change in Higher Education to address challenges of the 21st Century
Agriculture in the 21st century has evolved—growing much more complex and intertwined with other cross-disciplines as it intersects with health and nutritional science, biosciences, engineering, environmental impacts, the food system, value chains, and agricultural markets.
Educational institutions worldwide are undergoing scrutiny as many people question whether the current agricultural programs are adequately preparing graduates with the skills needed to respond to the future needs of their employers and society.
This conference explores the challenges and opportunities confronting agriculture, higher education, and the roles that society, our communities, business and entrepreneurship, values and ethics play in the education of leaders and agents of change in agriculture and life sciences.
Universities need to explore new and innovative pedagogy, seek more effective and integrated educational systems, and transform their educational systems. We must consider the role of students and faculty within the university culture, and the changes which are needed to create more effective learning and research environments.
How do we best prepare the future leaders in agriculture to become ethical, creative, and innovative thinkers who are able to meet the challenges of the 21st century? This is the question we want to explore as part of this conference.
The conference plans to explore the process of university transformation and successful experiences.
