Anne Brunila to lead panel for developing education

Minister of Education Sanni Grahn-Laasonen has appointed Anne Brunila, Professor of Practice at Hanken, as Chair of a panel that will try to envisage the ever-changing needs within education.

The development in science and the changes in society lead to new needs for know-how and the demand for work-force skills will change. This calls for the education system to develop in order to meet the changing demands of companies and the labour market.

-Automation, robots and artificial intelligence are bound to affect the way of working. Machines can do most of the mechanical work but also perform tasks that demand higher education, says Anne Brunila. New jobs will emerge but identifying what they may be and to educate in the right direction are a big challenge for the educational institutions today, Brunila adds.

The panel will suggest ways to develop the knowledge on all levels of education and in every form of education. Professor of practice Anne Brunila will lead the panel that consists of e.g. Olli-Pekka Heinonen, Finnish National Agency for Education, Martti Hetemäki, Ministry of Finance, Paula Laine, Sitra and Ilkka Paananen from Supercell.
