The SEK Global Education Forum is an alliance between SEK Schools and our University and was created as a movement that proposed changes and alternatives to the traditional education systems.
Yesterday, we at SEK-Qatar had our first kickoff event and over the next three weeks our students will be part of the SEK-Qatar teams competing against schools and universities from all over the world. They will be competing in either a Hackathon (MYP) or a Challenge (DP) debating the following questions:
“What does today’s university need to be better? What 3 things should it keep, 3 things should it add, and 3 things should it eliminate?”
“How can digitalization transform the current educational model?”
In addition, GEF will be holding online “microevents”. The first microevent will be on 28th September all about entrepreneurship.
Eventually, from 13th – 15th of October, all participants will be able to join the virtual “Global Education Forum 3rd Act” where the results of the Hackathon and Challenge will be revealed. Participates will come together and get the opportunity to discuss key issues and conclude the debate.
