On February 20, 2013, we will welcome Dr. Yong Zhao to Santa Cruz. Dr. Zhao is currently a full professor and the Presidential Chair and Associate Dean for Global Education, College of Education at the University of Oregon. Dr. Zhao’s current work focuses on designing 21st Century Schools in the context of globalization and the digital revolution. He has spoken on educational issues in many countries and has published over 20 books, including Catching Up or Leading the Way; American Education in the Age of Globalization and World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Students.
On February 20th, Dr. Zhao will be presenting his latest book, World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Students, where he proposes that the current measures of education quality through standardized testing are misleading and that the so-called high performing education systems do not actually produce the kind of creative and entrepreneurial talents we need.
