Leading A Future Of Change

9:15 - 10:00am

To kick off day two we will be starting with a discussion on how we best prepare our students of today to work in global communities of tomorrow.

 

In an increasingly interconnected world, students will need to make decisions that are inclusive of diverse perspectives and act on issues that transcend traditional boundaries. How as educators do we build the skills and competence of our people to work in communities across different cultures and to solve complex problems that may not have simple solutions?
