dc.description.abstract PCF10 Sub-theme: Inspiring Innovations [PRESENTATION] // The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) has crossed its inflection point and is becoming a reality. Several industry leaders and organizations are advocating for a reform in education and training systems, among others, because of the recent advances in 4IR technologies and the accelerated adoption of these technologies in the industry. This places a particularly critical demand on the future workforce – be agile. Students are expected to adapt to the increased human-machine symbiosis anticipated in emerging employment types. Agility is the means of adaptation. Similar to how several key industries in general are reshaping themselves to be agile organizations, academic institutions are also expected to infuse agility in its operations, specifically in preparing learners to be lifelong learners. That is, learners are to reskill themselves to accommodate the changing workplace. To succeed, students need to master several competencies including 1) the ability to marry intelligent computing to their work, 2) to track and measure their workplace productivity, 3) to connect technology, data and human literacies in a globalized context, 4) to nurture cognitive and metacognitive capacities (e.g., self-regulation, critical thinking), and 5) to be agile. While it is quite possible to introduce the philosophy and the application of agility in a theoretical manner, an alternative is to let the students practice agility as part of their coursework. Courses can be designed to subject the learning outcomes, study tasks, and associated activities to agile methods. Athabasca University is currently in the process of converting two of its online courses, a graduate course and an undergraduate course, to an agile learning pedagogy. This workshop, with live demonstrations, will detail the process of transformation of a constructivist online content to agile content. It further offers a suite of metrics to measure the impact of agile learning. // Paper ID 6183
