Session B1

7th Annual CNM Conference on Teaching and Learning

The Agile Mindset: Preparing Students for the Unknown

Heather McGowan

La Ventana, 12:30-1:45

Keynote speaker Heather McGowan will outline The Agile Mindset, a curricular approach that provides students with the skills to adapt to a changing workforce, think critically, and thrive in complex, unpredictable environments.  Education that imparts and assesses existing knowledge is insufficient; through The Agile Mindset, students develop the foundation to solve problems that haven’t yet been defined.  Possibilities for application within two-year institutions will be explored, and attendees will have the opportunity to brainstorm application within their own courses.
