Why Crisis, Confusion, Collaboration, and Creativity Matter
Date: Thursday, 06 May 2021
Time: 11:15 - 11:50
Presenter: Professor Anne Burns
Transformation is not an event but a journey, often triggered by change that is broad and deep in its impact. In the age of Covid 19, we’ve been living through a highly significant and disruptive political, social, economic and educational change that has profoundly affected the way many of us see our work both institutionally and personally. Where has this cataclysmic period of time left us and how can we use it for opportunity and change?
In this talk I will aim to bring some kind of understanding of how transformative journeys engage us in the 4Cs of crisis, confusion, collaboration, and creativity. I will argue that all these processes are, nevertheless, fundamental to authentic educational change. Along the way, I will illustrate my presentation with examples of some transformative journeys in education, and to conclude will aim to draw out some messages for educational institutions and managers.
