What is the future of learning?

What does the future of education look like? How does an open university like Athabasca University propel a learning journey?


We’ll admit it … at Athabasca University (AU), we used to run whole classes on voicemail. Wow, how things have changed.

Obviously (and thankfully) technology has advanced from there and we couldn’t be more happy about the prospect of what all of our tomorrows look like. How are the world leaders of tomorrow learning?

CEO of the Community and Individual Development Association and the Maharishi Institute, Dr. Taddy Blecher and Athabasca University Provost, Dr. Matthew Prineas sat down on the Disruption Magazine podcast to talk about how old models of learning simply don’t work anymore.


How has training and re-training for current and future occupations been dramatically altered thanks to tech?

Why is a forward-thinking and imaginative open institution like AU, who is focused on the learner, so vital?

How does an online learning model based on one’s own experience and own context propel the idea of lifelong learning?
