As part of its commitment to ongoing professional development and innovative approaches to education, Humber’s Centre for Teaching and Learning will be presenting a talk and workshop by John Seely Brown based on his latest book, New Culture of Learning: Cultivating the Imagination for a World of Constant Change.
The former Chief Scientist at Xerox, who now calls himself the “Chief of Confusion,” Brown has worked with governments, companies, and other organizations around issues relating to education reform and learning in the digital age, creativity, and fostering innovation.
“He’s a global leader when it comes to understanding how to overhaul education,” says Eileen DeCourcy, Humber’s associate vice president of teaching and learning, who arranged the talk and workshop. “We’re a learning-centred institution, so it’s important for us to be on the forefront of understanding how to foster an environment of creativity and innovation so our students can be successful.”
