STELAR Webinar: Future Work at the Human-Technology Frontier
Join authors of "Building the Foundational Skills Needed for Success in Work at the Human-Technology Frontier," for the first of four webinars in our series exploring the educational and social implications of living, learning and working in a future driven by technology.
Future Work at the Human-Technology Frontier
January 25, 2018 - 2:00-3:00 pm ET
What does work look like at the Human-Technology Frontier?
What will workers need to know and be able to do to succeed there?
Advances in technology, automation, and artificial intelligence predict fundamental changes that have the potential to impact “work” in all regions of the country, for people at all socioeconomic levels. Although the future of work is unclear, thought leaders around the world, including those at the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), assert that the Internet of Things, robotics, and machine learning will be ubiquitous in tomorrow’s workplaces. In this new machine age, various technologies (sensors, communication, computation, and intelligence) will be embedded around, on, and in us; humans will shape technology and technology will shape human interaction; and technologies and humans will collaborate to discover and innovate in short, the Human-Technology Frontier.
During this webinar STELAR's Joyce Malyn-Smith, Sarita Pillai and Caroline Parker will share descriptions of future work environments provided by interviewees from high tech industries currently working at that frontier, and describe the types of skills, knowledge and dispositions our students need to develop to set them on a pathway to success in work at the Human-Technology Frontier.

*Please note that while registration is not limited, there are only 100 seats available. Joining the webinar day-of will be on a first come, first served basis. Registration does not guarantee you a spot in the webinar, as we must allow some level of over-subscription to ensure that those who are able to listen are not locked out because of those who register but do not attend. If the 100 seats are filled and you are not able to listen live, a recording and archive of webinar materials will be posted to the website the day after the event.*
