DR. ULCCA JOSHI HANSEN
From Reformed to Transformed (Singapore Premiere)

A lot has been made of the industrial model of education and the need to redesign away from this model. However, to focus on the industrial model is to ignore the fact that it is the by-product of deeply-entrenched scientific, cultural and social beliefs that are being challenged and overturned in radical ways in today’s globalized, multi-cultural, ecologically-oriented world, and across a range of other disciplines. 

This talk will leave audience members with a deeper understanding of the powerful beliefs that undergird the “industrial model” and will challenge them to move beyond tinkering with the model by proposing strategies for uprooting and replacing the model, the only way in which efforts to transform education will succeed.
