Description



Part of the 2017 Innovation Week

The World Economic Forum estimates that young people can expect to change careers at least seven times over the course of their lives, and 35 percent of the skills required today will be different in five years.

The complexity and uncertainty of the future of work means today’s graduates will have to adapt to new jobs and work environments, but the challenges and opportunities are many:

  • Will Artificial Intelligence transform my dream job?
  • What level of technical literacy do I need for any job?
  • How will interdisciplinary collaboration help me with my specialisation?
  • What skills do I need to work internationally?

Our academics are addressing these questions and are already reshaping education to prepare our students for the future.

Join us for a special event on the future of work that brings together three of our leading minds from different disciplines: Sandra Peter from Sydney Business Insights, a strategic initiative on the future of business; Martin Tomitsch on the role of design in shaping the interactions between people and technology; and Nicky Ringland on digital technology and computer science skills needed by all students.

They are joined by CEO of StartupAUS Alex McCauley, in a conversation led by Richard Miles, leader of the University’s educational engagement with the community and industry sector.

See this page for full speakers' biographies.

This event is part of the University of Sydney Innovation Week 2017, bringing together staff and students involved with ground breaking discoveries and transformative inventions to celebrate and share how we are changing the world.
