(REF21091) Collaboration in Action

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Our inquiry of focus is how might we improve collaboration in action?

In our current context and ongoing pursuit to advance SDG 4 Quality Education together, how is collaboration defined? How are collaboration skills developed? How is technology enabling and disabling our collaboration goals and aspirations? In this session, we gather to review the global competencies, often categorized as the ‘6Cs’ for sustainable development, and specifically, the skill and practice of collaboration.

Facilitated by the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto, this session includes a Moderated Virtual Roundtable where we are joined by researchers, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts to share their perspectives on skills and opportunities for collaboration improvement followed by our 10-Minute Motivator Series where colleagues from across the globe provide brief insights into various innovative methods and partnerships for collaboration.
