10/24免费讲座:如何让我们孩子的教育更加创新、快乐和持久

Dear parents,

We would like to join us for a free parent-education event on Friday, October 24 in Los Altos.

In this event,  we invite four distinguished panelists to present and share with the audience about their experience and perspectives on how to raise and empower creative, happy and successful learners: ie, your child.  All graduates with advanced degrees from top universities, they also have diversified professional background as educators and counselors.

Another area that the panelists will discuss is where the colleges will be going in 10 to 25 years. Education is now changing dramatically: MOOCs, Minerva project, to name a few. How should our children’s generation – and all the other generations – prepare for the change?  (Hint: Getting into an Ivy League is not any guarantee of a good job or a good life anymore).

Here are the details:

***********************************************************************************************

各位家长,

我们诚挚地邀请您参加由加州大学伯克利分校华人商业协会 (Berkeley Chinese Business Association) 举办的免费讲座。时间是 2014 年 10 月 24 日(星期五)的晚上六点到九点,具体地点将在您填写登记表格确认之后发送给您。

本次讲座邀请的四位嘉宾全部毕业于美国顶尖名校,包括斯坦福、剑桥、布朗、韦尔斯利女子学院和普度,他们的专业背景包括工程师、教师、咨询师、慈善机构和高科技公司创始人。他们将用他们的亲身教育和职业背景,和大家分享如何更好培养有创意、开心快乐以及成熟的学生。

另一个他们会和大家分享的是美国的高等教育和整个教育行业正在进行的静悄悄的巨变。也许您还没有注意到,网络教育已经从成人的职业培训开始蔓延到美国普通高校以及初高中的日常教育中,而且传统的大而全的美国大学正在被小而精的本科学院和其他非正统教育方式所侵蚀。十年后的斯坦福和那些所谓藤校,还值得大家悬梁刺股般去申请吗?

如果您感兴趣我们的话题,座位有限,请尽快在网上报名参加,具体细节见下:
