With the rapid changes around us, we, as educators, need to be flexible with the adaptation to new environments.
One of these changes is the skill set that is needed to survive in today’s world. Such skills are essential to every person in order to succeed either in life or in academia or in the job market.
These skills are needed due to the technology explosion, information overflow, and the fast growth of the information industry. Such as, research skills, evaluating skills and most importantly Lifelonglearning skills.
In that sense, we need to encourage, guide and support our students to find their way in the learning environment and help them to navigate through their learning journey in order to acquire the necessary skills, and to master the Lifelonglearning skills.
Our role as educators is changing so is the students’ role. The new learning theories support such changes as well as any new topic.
Encourage the students to seek skills, knowledge and experience on their own terms with your guidance and support.
