Fourth panel discussion on work and the future

Prof Babu Paul of the University of Johannesburg.

On Wednesday 12 September 2018, JIAS hosted a panel discussion on ‘Work and the Future: Perspectives from Higher Education’. This was the fourth and final in our series of high-level panel discussions on work and the future.

Panelists considered the implications of the Fourth Industrial Revolution for tertiary institutions. Specifically, they discussed whether universites should only teach science and technology, whether the humanities have a future, and the extent to which universities should collaborate with industry.

The panelists were Prof Babu Paul of UJ, Prof Ruksana Osman of the University of the Witwatersrand, and Prof Robin Crewe of Pretoria University.
