Human Interdependence Project (HIP)

23rd February, 2024 @ 9:00 am


23/02/2024 - 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


Be part of a global partnership with AISSA, YEE Education and Professor Yong Zhao through the Human Interdependence Project (HIP)!

Schools are invited to participate in a pilot program with Professor Zhao and YEE Education to work with teachers and students from across the globe to find problems worth solving and to innovate, create and find entrepreneurial solutions that create value for others.

The program aims to cultivate globally competent, creative and entrepreneurially minded humans, following the three pillars of the new paradigm of education proposed by Yong Zhao: personalisable learning, authentic product-oriented learning, and globally situated learning.

Students and teachers from Australia, China and beyond will work together to create authentic products that illustrate human connectedness and interdependence in the globalised world. In doing so, students will discover and develop their unique strengths, enjoy participation in product creation and service opportunities that make a difference and develop global competency and social intelligence in online and cross-cultural settings.

Teachers will develop new skills for teaching in a new paradigm of education, lead the creation of future education, network with like-minded educators in Australia and China and have the opportunity to work with some of the world’s leading education experts.
