The exciting course “Shaping Work of the Future”

We are delighted to introduce the exciting course “Shaping Work of the Future”

 of Professor Thomas Kochan, member of the Editorial Board of Shaping Futures Magazine, a publication of the Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation. Here is a letter from Professor Thomas Kochan to Boston Global Forum’s colleagues.

Dear Boston Global Forum Colleagues,

Several years ago I participated in one of your forums.  I see you recently focused on AI and its impacts.

Given our shared interests, I would like to invite members of your network to join us in our online MOOC on Shaping Work of the Future that starts March 19.  It is free and open to all.

This year we will give special emphasis to how advances in technology (AI, Robotics, etc.) can be used to create better work, more inclusive societies, and broadly shared prosperity.  We link the course to our MIT Task Force on Work of the Future and draw in lots of experts from MIT and around the world.

Attached is a description of the course and here is a link to a video about it and a place to register.  I would very much appreciate it if you would share this with your network.  Please let me know if I can be helpful in any way.


Best wishes,

Tom Kochan
