The inaugural Future EduLeaders’ Symposium 2017 is Singapore Teachers’ Union’s (STU) platform to connect educators with distinguished leaders from cutting-edge organisations to envision the future and prepare for anticipated challenges.
In enabling Educators to be Future-Proof and Future-Ready, the Symposium will focus on thought-provoking discussions and exclusive insights to inspire and inculcate leadership skills in Educators.
The Symposium theme, “Global Disruption and Education: The Future is Now”, explores the impact of global disruption on the youngsters, economically and socially. At the same time, the speakers would also lend their perspectives to facilitate the discussion on overcoming the challenges and impacts of global disruptions.
Educators can look forward to network with dynamic and influential leaders of various domains and like-minded peers for exchanges on future education trends, progressive perspectives.
Together, we can prepare our young for the future now!
