OEB's Annual Plenary Debate

This House believes that an obsession with economics is harming education and undermining the skills we need for the future

 

Education is becoming increasingly focussed on delivering the skills employers need. Is this a good thing? As we struggle to satisfy employers and meet the demands of the market, are we losing sight of what is really important? In our obsession with 'Industry 4.0' and as we try to define '21C skills' in an era of rapid, technological change, are we losing sight of what is really important in education and failing to provide learners with what they are likely to need for their whole lives? Shouldn't we be providing the existential skills that will always be relevant and not just the training for jobs and markets that are likely to be here today but gone tomorrow? Are the short-term needs of industry and an exaggerated emphasis on the importance of economics in planning education policy distorting our priorities? Are the latest models right for what our societies and our planet are likely to need in the future? How can we future-proof learning?

Join us at the OEB Global Debate for a discussion about the fundamentals of education and an exciting exploration of what learning should mean in the future.

We have moved beyond exploration to discovery. We see and experience what can happen. We feel the new, the imaginative, the unthinkable within our grasp. We are discovering learning.

Learning Cafés

These round-table interactive break-out sessions engage you with collaboration, peer-learning activities and discussions.

Panel Discussions

These sessions are organised collectively by a group of 2-5 speakers and a moderator to discuss a pertinent issue or topic. Each speaker presents his/her views after which time is dedicated for a lively and informative Q&A between panel and participants attending.

Knowledge Factories

The agendas of these workshops during the main event days offer practical activities, exercises and strategies for you to take back and implement in your organisation.

Unconference Sessions and Fishbowls

Quickly tap into your own source of wisdom in these sessions in which good ideas and conversation bubble up. Unconferences and Fishbowls are designed for active participation to spark synergy and building coherence among peers.

Panel Presentations

These sessions bring together 2-5 speakers from different backgrounds presenting for 15-20 minutes each on a common topic. An expert in the field chairs the panel and ensures the combination of single talks presents a unified learning goal.

Tech Labs

Hands-on, BYOD workshops are hosted by facilitator(s) who have designed specific exercises, guiding you to work with digital tools and/or free software.

Boardroom Dialogues

Topic-focused networking events encourage communities to connect around shared interests. Each Boardroom Dialogue is centered around a specific theme or community and led by one to two speakers introducing the topic and facilitating networking or focusing discussions.

Discovery Demos

Discovery demos show tools, next generation materials and pre-release products for learning and training. Five to ten discovery demo speakers are presenting simultaneously at standing tables, giving you a chance to interact on an informal, one-to-one basis with these developers and creators.
