RELEVANT TODAY • READY TOMMORROW
The Trends in Holistic Education Symposium Asia 2017 (or THESA 2017) – Life-Long • Life-Wide • Life-Deep returns for the second year with the theme "RELEVANT TODAY • READY TOMORROW“. Today, educational institutions face enormous challenges to develop learners who will thrive in the fast-paced and knowledge-intensive digital economy that awaits them. THESA2017 will examine global trends and important developments in education that challenges the adequacy, relevance and effectiveness of the mainstream educational approaches.
THESA2017 is a full three-day event and will bring together world class speakers, thought leaders, educators and recognised practitioners to discuss the direction of the education industry and explore leading pedagogical practices and emerging educational technologies that will make a significant impact on education around the world. The speakers will bring together a wide variety of inspiring presentations, innovative case studies and interactive workshops, suitable for all levels of education (K-12 to tertiary) and educational leadership roles (school leaders, educators and researchers). Additionally, industry experts will also share expectations and learning moments on the new norm in the workplace and the requisites for a successful 21st Century knowledge worker.
THESA2017 encourages delegates to have a constructive discourse to learn, re-learn and unlearn and apply what is useful, needed and purposeful in our learning organisations. The key message that will resonate throughout THESA2017 is that our learning journey must be life-long, life-wide and all encompassing. It must also be life-deep with purpose, attitude and service.
