The Future of Education & Skills: A learning framework relevant for 2030 (Inner Sydney)

Wednesday 1st August 2018

Event Details

ACE Inner Sydney and ACE Sutherland St George invite you to a combined event at Sir Stamford, Sydney Airport. This is the 2nd presentation in Sydney by Dr Phil Lambert, with the Hills Parramatta event having sold out earlier in the year.

Dr Lambert will discuss his involvement on the OECD Education 2030 Framework Project Team and his recent Future Frontiers Background Paper for the NSW Department of Education. Dr Lambert concluded in his Future Frontiers Background Paper:

There is clear recognition across the globe that the acquisition of technical knowledge and know-how (mastery and techniques), though valued, are not sufficient for young people to navigate life and work in a world that is complex and characterised by ambiguities and uncertainty.

Drawing on his OECD experience and a strong reference base, Dr Lambert will lead educators at this event to look at the educational horizon for students who have already commenced their schooling in a rapidly changing world.

Tickets are inclusive or a two course dinner, with groups of 8 receiving a discounted price. Discounted parking ($15) is also available at the venue.
