FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Tuesday, 06 July 2021
Lagos, Nigeria – BMGA Enterprise Limited (BMGA), an educational technology finishing school for the future of work that specializes in social and marketing intelligence to increase productivity, was selected by British Council, an international organization that builds connections, understanding and trust between people in the UK and other countries through arts and culture, education and the English language, to present a poster at the 2021 Going Global Conference which held from 15-17 June, 2021.
Going Global is a conference for leaders in international education to debate the future of further and higher education. It provides an avenue for knowledge exchange, sharing research and analysis that support the development of evidence-led policy, building a global network for policy-makers and practitioners working in the field of international education, and supporting global thought leadership.
In line with the theme for the 2021 conference titled ‘Reimagining International Tertiary Education for a Post-Pandemic World’, BMGA was selected to present a poster on ‘Soft Skills and the Future of Education.’ The presenter, Ms Gbemisola Abudu, was chosen alongside Professors, research experts, and academic institutions across the world due to our scientific approach to deploying soft skills for the future of work.
The poster focused on how the COVID-19 pandemic revealed that customary educational methods had not equipped students with essential soft skills that would enable them to manage stress, isolation, and other unexpected circumstances. It further proposed that courses on soft skills can be embedded into the strict curricula of tertiary institutions through collaboration with third-party organizations which would deploy online-based soft skills courses on topics such as emotional intelligence and critical thinking. This method will not only help students learn soft skills that are important for the future of work, but it will also make digitalization a familiar concept for lifelong technological knowledge.
