PAST S&C: REDESIGNING EDUCATION FOR THE FUTURE

Speaker: Jonathan Code, Director of Crossfields Institute

Friday 23rd March 2018

When has education ‘lit a fire’ for you? When has it put your fire out? What potentials and pitfalls lie ahead for students and educators in the ipad age?

Education is a process that we have all experienced, many of us contribute to in one way or another, and most of us have something to say about. In this evening conversation we will discuss some current trends in education as a stepping off point for considering innovations that might be needed in education in order to meet a future that is increasingly complex. 

'the mind does not require filling like a bottle, but rather, like wood, it only requires kindling to create in it an impulse to think independently and an ardent desire for the truth.” (Plutarch, Moralia)
