How do we best prepare young people for the rapidly changing world of the future, and equip them to thrive in an unpredictable world?

Join us at Research Conference 2019 to review research into innovative ways of conceptualising, developing and assessing this broader range of priorities for student learning and development in the 21st century.

Professor Geoff Masters AO

How do we best prepare young people for the rapidly changing world of the future? How can we equip today’s students to survive and thrive in an unpredictable world? Globalisation, technological advances and the changing nature of work all have far-reaching implications for the work of schools. At the same time, schools are grappling with a range of challenges including social inequality, mental health issues, substance abuse, cyberbullying, environmental sustainability and radicalisation.

There is widespread agreement that students require new levels of skill in collaborating, communicating, thinking critically, innovating, solving problems and applying what is learnt in new contexts. These skills need to be underpinned by values and dispositions that include a commitment to social inclusion, responsible citizenship and respect for human rights.

Research Conference 2019 reviews research into innovative ways of conceptualising, developing and assessing this broader range of priorities for student learning and development in the 21st century. The conference program presents a breadth of perspectives from teachers, policymakers, researchers and academics to help you engage with this ongoing and multi-faceted challenge.
