While diagnostic expansionism and Big Pharma certainly deserve a large share of the blame for this epidemic, there is another reason. For many of us, society has become increasingly alienating, isolating and insane, and earning a buck means more degrees, compliance, ass-kissing, shit-eating, and inauthenticity.
Happy International Youth Day! The university rector, Professor Narimanyan, explained that this innovative method allows students to upgrade their practical skills and reduce the number of mistakes they could potentially make in their medical careers. I think that this university center is a good example of how to improve the practical skills of graduates and foster innovation, which is needed, not only in Armenia but worldwide.
Inthe Europe and Central Asia region was the fastest growing region among emerging economies and economic growth was accompanied by stronger growth in labor productivity.
The importance of skills A key factor for both labor force participation and labor productivity is skills. It is common knowledge that due to the impact of fast-emerging — and often ICT-related - technologies and changes in the organization of work, jobs that involve routine tasks that are easy The society demands young people automate are disappearing, while new employment creation involves tasks demanding skills that are non-routine e.
As labor force surveys and recent World Bank reports have shown, younger workers are — in principle - coping better with these shifts in the demand for skills, while there is a concern that older workers may be at higher risk of suffering from skills obsolescence.
However, as we know from PISAmany education systems find it challenging to prepare young people for this new world. Education is still often characterized by rote learning and repetition instead of teaching to reason and focusing on problem-solving skills and real-world issues.
This certainly applies to primary and secondary education but it is also a problem for tertiary education. Thus, skills have become a severe constraint to growth and employers have highlighted this on various occasions.
Tertiary education has an important role to play The question for us today is how can tertiary education systems respond to these challenges and play a stronger role in preparing young people for the labor market? Tertiary education can be a powerful engine for building a better society, for productivity and growth.
It needs to function as a system of connected actors: It is also important for universities to prepare and retrain professionals for a world where demand for routine work is systematically disappearing, as machines and ICT are replacing workers.
Demand for more elaborate design thinking yet, is still on the rise. Thus, besides an initial education and training function on the tertiary level, universities can and indeed should also play an important role with regard to lifelong learning.
Connecting universities to the labor market Good quality information is another area which is critical for connecting universities to the world of work. Curricula need to be based on agreed generic and professional or technical learning outcomes — developed jointly by the higher education sector, employers and other key stakeholders - and institutions needed to support students through practical placements, internships, career guidance and labor market information.
This seems overly evident but often such provisions are not in place and students are left on their own. I would also like to mention bridging programs in the context of employability, i. Such programs can contribute significantly to the success of the learner and also to his or her future career.
Overall, there needs to be appropriate governance, management, financing and quality assurance systems in place in order to enable universities to fulfill their missions concerning societal and labor market demands.

Reply Alert moderator Mel. Jul 12, · Contemporary society is a disciplinary society and is necessary to have. In Foucault’s book, Discipline and Punish, he explains the gradual change of 17th century punishments compared to the modern more gentle way of creating discipline and punishing people who commit crimes within society.
I have chosen the topic “The society’s demands - the young people”, since I have personal interest in it. Furthermore, I do think that the society is making more and more high demands to young people.
You have to write about yourself already in fourth grade about possible future education.
Every moment- but most especially today- we should celebrate young people and the great potential they have.
How universities can respond to the new demands of the labor market and society. Submitted by Claudia many education systems find it challenging to prepare young people for this new world.
Education is still often characterized. To reach all the children and young people needing treatment or support would require an extra 23, staff at a cost of £m a year.
the whole of society that needs government leadership. People say that the youth are our future. We are here to show that we are the present. We will not wait until society decides we are old enough to take on the issues that affect our lives.
