The future belongs to those who prepare for it
1 June | 16.00 CET
We are all living through the greatest, unplanned period of change and uncertainty in human history. We have had to draw on our human skills and experiences more than ever, in order to find a way to survive and thrive.
In this timely and inspirational session, Richard will use his experience and expertise to help us, as educators, make sense of the last few months and explore how we can take what we are learning and shape it to ensure that it meets the needs of our students. Richard will explore the soft skills we need to cultivate and develop if our students are to be best equipped to master the world they will be inheriting from us.
There has never been a better time for us to explore our teaching, it is ultimately going to be our legacy and their future.
