The Advanced Leadership Initiative (ALI) wants to know what you think about education, technology, and innovation. As part of its upcoming Education Think Tank, people from outside of Harvard University are invited to join in the conversation about how to make education more relevant.
“If we are serious about reinventing education, it is going to take many people,” says Professor Fernando Reimers, ALI co-chair.
ALI is an interfaculty collaboration at Harvard that aims to prepare experienced leaders to take on new challenges in the social sector, where they potentially can make an even greater societal impact.
This year, the mission of ALI’s Education Think Tank, dubbed “Leveraging Technology to Enhance the Relevancy and Quality of Education,” is to dig deep into issues surrounding education innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship. “It seems to me the needs in a social context involving jobs, the economy, and politics are changing much faster than schools are,” Reimers says. “We need to think hard about what we are going to do to adapt to those changes.”
