Description

High Resolves and Swinburne University of Technology (Melbourne) are excited to welcome education leaders to Ed Summit 2019: Lead the Change to be held at Swinburne on Friday, 2 August. Ed Summit 2019 will focus on one of the most pressing questions of our time:

In a world that is rapidly evolving can we truly say our education system is doing the same?

In the next 20 years, we will see great opportunities arise through rapid advances in technology and industry however there will also be many new challenges facing our students that as educators we will need to prepare them for. A changing job market, globalisation, complex social issues such as climate change, wealth inequality, and migrating populations are all things that young people will have to contend with.

So how do we prepare our schools to adapt and thrive in this uncertain future? And what are the skills and attributes that will be valued in this rapidly shifting landscape?

In the face of such tremendous change, our students and teachers will need to have different skills, hence, education will no longer just be about ‘knowing', but will require us to focus on the development of critical global competencies such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking, diverse perspectives and citizenship. Giving students the ability to work across borders, solve real-world problems and collaborate with diverse groups to overcome complex challenges will be the key to success.

But what does this mean for the Australian education system and how will this change the way we educate?

Ed Summit 2019: Lead the Change will bring together global thought-leaders, trail-blazers and leaders from the education sector and beyond to look at the evolving face of education globally and provide school leaders with the tools to create an action plan for change based on best practice from around the world.

Attendees of Ed Summit 2019 will walk away with:

A Global Perspective: With speakers from around the world sharing case studies from on the ground learn from their insights to inform best practice at your school and enhance the culture of learning for the 21st century.

Innovative Solutions: Discover what some of the biggest innovators and disruptors in education are achieving through their forward thinking and trail-blazing spirit. Learn how these new ways of thinking will help guide the transformation of education in Australia.

An Action Plan for Change: Ed Summit 2019 will not only inspire you but give you real strategies, resources and tools to implement at your school right away. Don’t miss out on being a part of this national movement to reimagine the way we educate young people for the 21st century.
