Keynote: The Essential 21st Century Skill

Rewire your brain for a lifetime of learning

Tuesday 15 October, 5:30pm – 7:30pm
WG308 Sir Paul Reeves Building, AUT City Campus – 55 Wellesley Street East

Join us for an engaging and interactive session where we will examine and dissect 21st Century skills (critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and more) and explore why they are so difficult - in fact potentially impossible - to teach. From there we'll explore the only truly future-proof life skill there is: the thirst for learning, why it’s so important and how to access and enhance your own and your organisations’ appetite and ability to learn.
