The Learning Future
Season 2: Episode 14 - Transforming Education Through Human Capacities with Michael Anderson
How might we support every young person to be prepared for the present and ready for their future?This week on The Learning Future Podcast, we speak with Professor Michael Anderson, an internationally recognised educational leader who has taught, researched, and published in education and transformation for over 20 years. We discuss how we might support every young person to have the opportunity for collaboration, critical reflection, communication and creativity to harness their present. How integrating the whole learning experience can inform our understanding of curriculum rather than a syllabus and that we change is possible, and transformation is achievable. Professor Michael Anderson is an internationally recognised educational leader, having taught, researched and published in education and transformation for over 20 years, including 13 books and many journal articles, and is currently at the University of Sydney. His international research and practice focuses on how the 4Cs (collaboration, critical reflection, communication and creativity) can be integrated, using coherent frameworks to meet the learning needs of 21st Century learners.His latest book is 'Transforming Education Reimagining Learning, Pedagogy and Curriculum', which takes a future-oriented re-imagining of schools focusing on innate human capacities: collaboration, critical reflection, communication and creativity.
