Description

Welcome to our Festival of Education at the Innovation Academy UCD

What does the future of education look like?

How do we support our children 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 and parents to explore, discuss and experience - 'Learning Re-Imagined' - in a relaxed, fun, informal environment.


Highlights:

What's the Big Idea?

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

For "What's the Big Idea" - our Educators are working in teams to develop their ideas for Learning Re-Imagined and they will share them with the audience in a fun and engaging manner.
