Leading Innovation Webinar Series, session 4 of 7: Why Student Agency Now?

7th May, 2020 @ 4:00 pm


07/05/2020 - 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Presented by Charles Leadbeater

In the continuous learning environment, how do schools ensure that learners will emerge from schooling as confident, capable, responsible agents of change?

Charles Leadbeater will explore this challenge, considering approaches to learning that will ensure the essential components, levels and aspects of student agency are central to the emerging learning paradigm.

Charles writes prolifically and advises governments and agencies, such as the OECD, throughout the world. He is currently working closely with member schools and co-authoring a book with the AISSA member schools involved in the AISSA ALab.

This session is part of our webinar series providing the opportunity for school leaders to connect with international experts to respond to the challenges presented by COVID-19. The webinars will support those working towards the creation of vibrant continuous learning environments for their students and school communities.
