Paul Kearney

Description

Paul Kearney, one of the pioneers of Enterprise Education, speaks to a group of teachers about how enterprising education can transform teaching and learning.

Kearney designed and managed Australia's first student programme that directly linked the development of enterprising attributes with all parts of the curriculum.

Too often, he argues, traditional education robs young people of the opportunity to use their initiative. If teaching encourages a more go-ahead attitude from students it produces better outcomes, better engagement and pupils learn more.

He says his methods encourage pupils to become lifelong learners - an essential skill in a rapidly changing world.
