2. Global Education Reform

Originally from the UK, Paul Andrews has extensive experience as a teacher, innovator and change manager at both a school and system level. He has been at the forefront of initiatives for school evaluation, school improvement, and system reform, many of which have had an enduringly positive impact.

Paul will be joined by special guests, to discuss the unprecedented and existential challenges we face in the 21st century that have rendered traditional approaches to schooling obsolete. Entirely new ways of thinking about education are needed, and they will discuss new interventions with a strong emphasis upon learner agency and empowerment through skills-based problem-solving. There will also be a chance to ask questions during a Q&A at the end of the session.

We will host this session on Wednesday 3 August at 12pm BST, and will be sharing the recorded session on demand afterwards for those who can’t attend.
