Description

Open Symposium on ‘The Future of Learning’

This symposium looks to the future of education. We have invited international speakers to agitate our thinking and deliberately challenge the prevailing paradigm. We will ask fundamental questions on the role and purpose of schools and colleges and suggest alternatives and future possibilities. Underpinning the argument may be an even more essential question on the purpose of education: is it to reproduce or to transform the societies in which we live?
