About the event

reinventing the university

Kicking off the Fourth Portal's Education In An Era Of AI event series, Professor John Wood argues that the education system needs a major overhaul in order to face the existential challenges of AI and climate change.

Drawing on decades of teaching, and running university courses and workshops, John takes participants on a fun and light-hearted journey to reconsider how education is delivered and received by learners.
