Muskingum University was an eager participant at the recent “Future of Work and Education Summit” held at the Ohio University Zanesville/Zane State College Campus Center. The event, which is sponsored by Muskingum, OUZ and Zane State, featured a dynamic keynote from Google’s Chief Education Evangelist, Jaime Casap, who collaborates with school systems, educational organizations, and leaders focused on building innovation into education policies and practices. Jaime highlighted the ways evolving technology can be used to help Gen Z learn and the continued need to review the way we deliver information to students.
Following Jaime’s fantastic discussion, Muskingum’s very own Dr. Paul Szalay – Science Division Chair and Professor of Chemistry – took the stage to present how the University uses technology to teach students problem solving skills and prepare them for the future. The audience, which included more than 20 Muskie representatives, heard multiple examples of technology-enabled learning on campus designed to prepare students for the future and to positively impact the region.
Dr. Szalay joined presenters from OUZ, Zane State, and Mid-East Career and Technology Centers who also engaged attendees with thoughtful discussions.
Way to represent Muskies!
