What are Campus Seminars?
Saku Tuominen, Creative Director, Campus Seminars
The world outside of school is changing faster than ever. This makes it difficult for teachers to understand what the world will look like when their students graduate. The less educators understand these changes, the more difficult it is to be excited and optimistic about the future.
The mission of Campus Seminars is to bring together the best experts in a wide range of fields, such as climate change, global health and artificial intelligence, to explain to teachers what changes are happening in these areas. Through equipping educators with this knowledge, Campus Seminars aim to inspire teachers to get excited about current global changes.
Educators can attend seminars in person or stream the talks online. This makes the seminars accessible to an even wider audience. Every school and every teacher in the country where each seminar takes place can watch the talks live and they remain online for future use. Collaboration between teachers from many different schools is also fostered through the seminars.
Teachers can take the knowledge gained at Campus Seminars back to their schools and ensure that students' learning experiences are relevant to current global trends. Change must become a key theme in schools so that teachers and students can embrace it with excitement and see it as an empowering opportunity.
