Education is facing a number of challenges, and addressing them will require diverse, informed, and courageous thinking. The Big Ideas webinar series seeks to promote discussion on important, complex and, at times, competing ideas that are relevant to the future of New Zealand’s education system.
The series intentionally features speakers with diverse perspectives. It is not expected that viewers will agree with all of the ideas discussed; indeed, it is highly likely that The Education Hub as an organisation will not agree with everything that is presented during the series. However, it is critical to progress that we are able to listen to ideas, to seek to understand the arguments being made, and to engage in constructive and consensus-building conversation. We hope you will join us for these thought-provoking sessions.

The Education Hub's mission is to bridge the gap between research and practice in education. We want to empower educators to find, use and share research to improve their teaching practice, and then share their innovations. We are building the online and offline infrastructure to support this to improve opportunities and outcomes for students.
