Professionally Speaking 22 with Professor Yong Zhao
Students as owners of learning and partners of educational change
Worldwide education has changed a lot over the past few decades, however, the results have not been nearly as positive and significant as had been expected. What has been missing is the most important factor in education: the learner.
In our 2022 lecture, critically acclaimed international thought leader, educator, and renowned author, Professor Yong Zhao, focussed on bringing the learner back to the centre of practice, discussing the significance of learner diversity, learner intention, and learner engagement in educational changes, particularly after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following an enlightening and entertaining 40-minute lecture, attendees had the chance to ask Professor Zhao their burning questions in a live Q&A session.
Held in partnership with Swansea University's School of Education, this was a valuable learning opportunity for those involved in education, providing practical tips, advice and best practise on how to increase learner interest and raise learner aspirations.
We’ve teamed up with Professor Yong Zhao to develop a bespoke reflection exercise for you. To access it, just log in to your Professional Learning Passport and head to your Professional Learning Templates.
