21st Century Academic Forum at Harvard



The theme - Teaching, Learning, and Research in the 'Just Google It' Age.

"The 21st Century Academic Forum is a global group of researchers and educators dedicated to supporting research that has the potential to influence the shaping of educational policy and practices to more effectively prepare students for the unique challenges of the 21st century. An overwhelming body of research indicates that students are leaving formal educational institutions inadequately prepared for the workforce and their lives in the knowledge-based economy".

Objective: The primary aim of the conference is to bring together an international group of researchers and practitioners to encourage and support the development of a new framework for better understanding the dynamic and interconnected nature of education, research, business, and life in the age of ubiquitous statement 'Just Google It'. When it takes a mere few seconds to find information about almost any topic, researchers and practitioners need to consider the implications of instant access to information in our traditional system of instruction and assessment.

We encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives under three major topic tracks:

  1. teaching and learning in the 21st century;
  2. creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship;
  3. academic research for the 21st century.
