Cathy Davidson, from City University of New York and The Futures Initiative, gave the first keynote talk of our X International Seminar. During her speech she asked the participants to write down on a card the top three things students need to learn in order to thrive in the world we live in. On a blog post, she says that people came up with great insights. Among the ideas she gathered, many of them point out the need of a competency-based curriculum, which should be far more flexible and created by students and teachers rather than distant authorities.
