It’s been clear for a long time that the way we traditionally think about skills and expertise is out of step with our fast-changing and volatile world. This issue runs through the education system in many countries and also influences how employers attract and upskill talent.

So, what are the innovative approaches that could solve this problem?

My guest this week is Ed Fidoe, co-founder and CEO of the London Interdisciplinary School (LIS). LIS has been described as the most radical new university to open in decades. It offers degrees that use an interdisciplinary approach to solving some of the complex problems that business and society face. There are interesting lessons for employers here around the concept of interactional expertise.

In the interview, we discuss:

• What is LIS, and why was it founded?

• Building networks of knowledge

• Connecting academic learning to the workplace

• Enhancing employability by addressing the current mismatch of expertise between college and the workplace

• Intellectual curiosity and problem-solving

• Cultivating diversity of thought through diversity of background

• The power of interactional expertise in the knowledge economy

• What future skills will be needed in an AI-driven world?
