The landscape of education is changing rapidly. New technologies challenge established norms. Emerging practices promise new modes and methods. Cultural, economic, and social changes encourage (and perhaps even demand) a comprehensive review of what education is, and what it’s for. We are living
The landscape is changing so fast, and so often, that it’s hard to know where to find a foothold. How do we integrate the storied, established traditions of education — focused on mindful, reflective teaching and learning for the whole person — with the economically urgent, forward-looking, adaptive, career-focused environment of today? How do we deal with this turbulence? How do we re-imagine and reinvent the purpose and character of educational institutions and the cultures they represent?
This is an exciting opportunity to participate in a thoughtful discussion with educators, parents, students, and anyone interested in the future of education. Please join me on November 28 (10am to noon), at the Surrey campus of Kwantlen Polytechnic University (in the Conference Centre), for a free presentation, panel discussion, and public forum about the current situation and what to do about it.
