Education 3.0: a change from teaching to learning
On October 16th, educationalists and Presidents from research-oriented universities around the world gathered in Seoul to attend the 2012 International Presidential Forum on Global Research Universities, where KAIST introduced its new smart learning model ‘Education 3.0’. Smart learning ‘Education 3.0’ allows students to learn from lectures given by renowned scholars through the internet and encouraged student to professor discussion. This technology was created to deal with the ever-changing classroom dynamics due to the advancement of IT technology.‘Education 3.0’ differs from the traditional teaching-based lectures in that it offers a platform for self-directed learning. KAIST is working to spread ‘Education 3.0’ by providing specialized classrooms and running an online learning platform that complements it. This spring, KAIST adopted ‘Education 3.0’ in 3 courses and received high praise from students (a rating of 4.4 out of 5.0). Hence, the number of courses was extended to 10 this fall. Through this gathering, KAIST hopes to develop cooperative connections between foreign universities to share learning platforms and contents. On October 16th, KAIST signed a MOU with Denmark’s Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU) to provide a cyber-dual degree program using ‘Education 3.0’. Hence, students studying Web science and Digital Media in either KAIST or DTU can receive degrees from both schools without physically visiting them. President Suh said that “‘Education 3.0’ provides a new paradigm of learning which moves from the tradition cramming method of teaching to self-directed learning” and that this model will help the globalization of KAIST by initiating global cooperation with foreign universities. Over 60 Universities from 27 different countries attended the forum, including ULCA and Caltech from the United States, DTU from Denmark, University of Southampton and University of York from England, University of Queensland from Australia, Nanyang Technological University from Singapore and Tokyo Institute of Technology from Japan. Members from Korean Universities such as Hanyang University, Handong Global University, Sogang University and Sookmyung Women"s University also attended.
Lee Su Young President of Gwang Won Industries Donates Real Estate worth 7 Million USD
On the 14th of September Lee Su Young President of Gwang Won Industries (since 1988) donated her entire personal real estate in Los Angeles worth 7 million USD. President Lee commented that “the strength of Science and Technology is the strength behind the development of Korea and I am certain that KAIST is the driving force” and the she “wishes to help out on the nurture of excellent intellectuals”. “I have led a frugal life, working hard and buying real estate in America. Wealth is not something that you can take beyond death so I always spent rationally in order to return my accumulated wealth back to society. I pondered what would be best for the development of Korea and without a moment’s hesitation I chose KAIST.” President Lee was touched by the drive for innovation by President Seo and the members of KAIST working day and night for the development of KAIST. “It was very moving to see a world renowned scholar like President Seo working tirelessly for the past six years to resurrect and develop KAIST. If KAIST continues to develop at such a pace then I am sure that KAIST will become a world class university. Donating to KAIST was sure to be equivalent to donating the Korea.” President Lee led a life more frugal and most and yet she did not have even a moment’s hesitation in donating her entire fortune. “My only wish is to see my donation help the students of KAIST with their studies. What more could I expect from them if they become outstanding servants of Korea.” President Lee graduated from Gyungi Girl’s High School and majored Law in Seoul National University and worked as a newspaper reporter from 1963 to 1980. She is the President of Gwang Won Industries which began as Gwang Won Ranch in 1971, and is also the Head Board Member at Seoul National University’s Scholarship Foundation for the College of Law. The donation will be used to fund the ‘KAIST-Lee Su Young International Education Program’ which encompasses the currently under test Education 3.0 program which will allow for the next generation student led education system using multimedia services.
