Emerging Issues in Educational Change

This post is by Helen Janc Malone.

Welcome to our first blog week!

We begin this week by addressing some of the key emerging issues in educational change. Our guiding questions include: What global trends are currently dominating (or beginning to dominate) whole-system level change? How does international benchmarking inform and shape education policy and practice? What are some of the key challenges and considerations associated with assessment-driven culture? How can we engage in mindful teaching with technology?

Answering these salient questions are: Michael Fullan, professor emeritus of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto; Andreas Schleicher, the deputy director for education and skills and a special adviser on education policy to the secretary-general at OECD; Andy Hargreaves, the Thomas More Brennan Chair at the Lynch School of Education at Boston College; Yong Zhao, the presidential chair and associate dean for global education in the College of Education at the University of Oregon; and, Dennis Shirley, a professor of education at the Lynch School of Education at Boston College.

We invite you to join the conversation by posting your comments and reflections.
