Putting World Class Learning Into Action With Yong Zhao
Incremental fixes aren’t enough if we’re to prepare our students for a future that will require them to be creative and entrepreneurial thinkers. What’s required is wholesale, whole-system transformation. Join Dr. Yong Zhao, author of World Class Learners, as he walks us through the three critical elements behind his all-new paradigm: personalization, product-oriented learning, and global campus.
Attend this webinar to better understand:
- Why creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit are essential qualities of future talents
