Dorsey examines the demand for rapidly changing career skills and what it implies for reimagining learning–and more urgently–embracing innovation in education. Proposing to accelerate educational innovation, Dorsey takes ecosystemic approaches to broaden student and educator access to community- and work-based learning experiences, augmenting academic content with “just-in-time” skill development and real-world application. Dorsey argues how innovation is critical to, and has to be a driver for, racial and gender equity in education and broader economic inclusion.
The Innovative Thinker Lecture is an annual presentation established in honor of SITE’s former Director of Education, Juliet Myers. This lecture highlights the significant work of a visionary educator.
