Symposium 2018

Symposiums 2018 – The Millennials Challenges and Opportunities

2017’s productive discussion on teaching the best practices in Delhi paved path for the theme for 2018-‘The Millennials: Challenges and Opportunities’. The symposium saw the participants discussing the nuances of teaching in contemporary times; for e.g. the challenge posed by e- learning and technology, a distracted audience with a shrinking attention span, confusion around careers arising from being over-informed, the continuing fear of quantitative tools, amongst others.

The Keynote Address was delivered by Dr James Abdey, Assistant Professorial Lecturer, Department of Statistics, The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), on one of the biggest millennial challenges, ‘Are Classrooms Irrelevant?’

For each of the 7 cities, we invited eminent Guest Speakers, who are thought leaders in the fields of education, banking, and government leadership, amongst others. They delivered a value-add session on how their respective expertise coincides with the challenges and opportunities faced by millennials.
