Moray House Annual Lecture 2019

"Going Global: Teaching New Century Students in a Diverse and Digital World"

Professor Gloria Ladson-Billings
University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA

Although human beings develop in remarkably similar ways, the environments in which they develop can be radically different and produce very different outcomes. Young people growing up in technologically sophisticated societies participate in the most highly tech, digitally interconnected global culture the world has ever experienced. However, traditional teaching and learning continues to reflect a more 19th century approach to schooling. This lecture addresses the ways global youth culture can provide teachers and educators with important entre into ways that they can be more successful with increasingly diverse student populations.

The lecture starts at 17:30, and will be followed by a drinks reception from 18:30 to 19:00.
