Yong Zhao’s Entrepreneurial Learning in Action

Is Australian schooling growing students’ talents or do we need to change?

Young people need to be creative, curious, resilient and resourceful to thrive in a fast-changing world. Twenty-one schools across Victoria and NSW spent 18 months working on student-led projects based on Professor Yong Zhao’s principles of entrepreneurial learning.

Join us for a Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership panel discussion with Professor Yong Zhao, Principal of Melbourne Girls’ College, Karen Money and Mitchell Institute Policy Fellow, Dr Bronwyn Hinz to discuss the impact of this project and how it’s changing learning.
