Description

Welcome to our Spring Festival of Education @ UCD Innovation Academy

What does the future of education look like?

How do we support our children and students to be the creators, entrepreneurs, innovators and leaders of tomorrow - and across all sectors of society - economic, social & cultural? How do we best prepare the next generation for the challenges ahead?

The Festival brings together practitioners, leaders, policy makers, parents and students to explore, discuss and experience - 'Learning Re-Imagined' - in a relaxed, fun, informal environment.


Highlights:

What's the Big Idea?

This Spring, Educators from across Ireland are exploring new trends in Education and Re-imagining their Teaching Practice.

Working in teams, our Entrepreneurial Educators are taking a Human-Centred Design approach to develop their ideas for 'Learning Re-Imagined' which they will share with the audience in a fun and engaging manner.
