For some unknown reason, my wonderful friend and true genius, Petroula Karagianni, thought I have a worthy opinion on matters education and decided to include a short interview with me on her side Melite.
You can find the full article here, and for those who want a sneak peak here is a tiny little bit to tempt to into visiting her wonderful site… Thanks Petroula!
- Maria, if you could build the curriculum of your dream-school, how would it look like?
I believe the dream curriculum evolves constantly based on continuous feedback from a wide range of people (students, professors and scientists, industry leaders and mid management…). I am a strong believer of failing fast to learn fast.
