Empathy in higher education- a superpower in the VUCA world

MaƂgorzata Grabania-Mukerji


Empathy is a cognitive superpower allowing us and our students to survive in the changing world of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. Empathy changes the DNA of the world, employment, and education. It is a fundament of all communicative competencies- but can we teach it? Yes, we can! Why not make it an underlying value of all that happens in the class and outside it?
