The Future of Work and Learning

2019-04_JBS The Future of Work_Web banner_v03 (1).jpg

With the convergence of disruptive technologies, including nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, robotics and 3D printing, the exponential shift that the Fourth Industrial Revolution brings is altering almost every sector globally. However, education and workforce development have only seen modest changes over recent years in preparing people for the future of work in this new world, particularly in the African context. Universities, governments and employers have a vital role to play in helping today’s students become tomorrow’s thriving employees, managers and leaders.

Looking forward, how is technology changing the way we learn? What can the government and the private sector do to ensure the education system aligns with the needs of future workplaces? What are the opportunities and threats of new technologies to growth and employment? What skills will the workers of tomorrow need to get on board the “fourth industrial revolution”?
