What’s next on the agenda…

“Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.”

John Dewey, philosopher, psychologist


Over the next few weeks I’m going to explore higher education
what it means to different people, how we obtain it, and the cost and benefits associated with it. It’s a topic I feel strongly about and I’m looking forward to your thoughts and participation as well!

In the meantime here’s some food for thought:

Is a formal education as necessary as it was in the past for career success? If yes, how long will it remain so?

Is the current model for higher education still relevant? Is it worth it?

Are there viable alternatives out there?

How far have you gone/are willing to go for a degree?
