The realm of education is changing radically as we speak. This change involves a paradigm shift that requires all institutions to transform the way they approach the science and business of educating others. Teachers are becoming supportive mentors who empower others in personally-defined endeavours. Technology is becoming an ever-present tool that disrupts the standing institutions and mechanisms of learning. Startups are entering an expanding education market. Gabriel Calzada, President of UFM, leads Mónica Zelaya, Patrick Ko, Adrián Catalán and Karla Ruiz inspect the challenges of teaching and learning in the world today.

Is current college education relevant? How long will it remain so? What are the inevitable effects of the progressive influence of technology in education? These and other enticing questions are examined in this profound discussion on society’s ever-persistent, most central problem.
