Addressing Educators at IQRA University, Karachi, Pakistan
Robert Thorn of A-JIS was invited to address delegates at the IQRA University’s International Conference on Innovation and Emerging Trends in Education & Social Sciences. IQRA University topped the league of universities in Pakistan this year. The conference hosted educators from universities and schools throughout Pakistan and beyond.
Robert spoke about the possibilities of transforming education within the current system through an inquiry approach to change. The approach allows change to occur from the cultural perspective of the people in the system therefore strengthening positive aspects of culture rather than imposing external changes that weaken culture.
Throughout the conference, interest was generated around developing connections especially in teacher training and the development of entrepreneurship.
