Opening Plenary : The new world of Work

Technological advancements, economic factors, changing demographic patterns and shifting societal norms continue to make a significant impact on the organization of work and the required knowledge, skills and competencies. In order to pursue the objectives of career development and employability, individuals are increasingly expected to take personal responsibility for their learning and ensure that their knowledge, skills and competencies remain updated and relevant. This keynote will address implications for career services professionals and discuss how to best approach this challenge through a review of alternative models and methods for learning and development in the digital era

It is based on experiential learning. It focuses on training the key competencies identified by the Lab, through group or individual exercises and works in pairs.
