How will the evening work?
Modelled on the “World Cafe” style of discussion.
Nibbles and beverages provided.
This EduCafe will be a bit different to previous events. Dr Haar will talk to us about his research, then participants will have the opportunity to discuss the implications of our new learning for schools, education and our learners.
The big question will be –
What do schools need to be like and do in light of the changing work place that our learners will enter into?
