In the conversations we have the opportunity to listen to as part of the podcast, we usually focus on the Polish perspective and the achievements of Polish researchers. Meanwhile – how do American universities, which we set as a model, deal with analogous issues – education, research and the challenges of digitisation?
Dr. Justyna Pokojska’s guest is Prof. Randy Boyle from Weber State University, visiting University of Warsaw on a Fulbright scholarship, who, while talking about how universities in the US are preparing for the coming technological revolution, provides a diagnosis of the last three decades of Polish transformation, including the digital one, and talks about
– American education model,
- comparison of the Polish and American way of teaching students,
- the key competences of the future that students in the USA acquire,
- the ways in which US universities have (not) dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic,
- democratisation of world education,
- ways to avoid the marketisation of universities,
- diagnosis of Polish students,
- the directions in which Polish education should go and the key competences that universities should teach,
- the advantage of Polish students and Poland itself compared to other countries.
