NPDLConnect Podcast series
Michael Fullan is a worldwide authority on educational reform.
Michael “walks the talk” by leading our NPDL Partnership – a global endeavor to shift pedagogy and deepen learning in over 1000 schools in 7 countries.
A former Dean of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) of the University of Toronto, Michael advises policymakers and local leaders around the world to provide leadership in education, integrating solid academic knowledge and the undeniable (and often under looked) theoretical richness of everyday teacher practice.
Michael received the Order of Canada in December 2012, and holds honorary doctorates from several universities in North America and abroad, and yet, he is a constant learner, a careful listener, a gifted observer and a defiant voice advocating for the moral purpose of all children learning. His perspective on the why and how to shape a meaningful school system for the learners of today pushes the thinking of thousands of change makers around the world.
In this Podcast, Michael talks us though areas such as Whole system change in Finland, why we should not wait for politicians to start changing schools and the relationship between equity and quality, amongst others!
