HR Presenters Day 269.png

The landscapes of knowledge and learning have shifted hugely in recent years, with the development of technology, digital media, and more importantly, the enlivened human consciousness of our connections with each other, and our relations with the planet. Yet, practices of public education largely remain fixed to a model of a century's duration, unresponsive to the emerging conditions and perilous in terms of preparation for the future. If regenerative practices in education are imperative, what is the most promising direction for transformation? Deeply immersed in the exploration of regenerative education are collaborators and co-authors Kenneth Gergen and Scherto Gill. Gergen's writing on relational being lays an important conceptual foundation for educational transformation, while Gill's work on deep dialogue and well-being offers insights into viable practice. Together they will discuss and illustrate the potentials of a relational vision for regenerating education. Favoured by this vision is the thriving of innovation, co-inquiry, inclusion and collaboration for the global good.

Ken lectures throughout the world on contemporary issues in cultural life, including the self, technology, civil society, organizational change, educational practices, global governance, and political conflict. Gergen and has received numerous awards for his work, including honorary degrees in both the U.S. and Europe.

Through research, grassroots projects and published work, Scherto actively explores ways to implement innovative ideas, such as deep dialogue, ethics of caring, positive peace and holistic well-being, in social transformation. Her most recent publications include: Happiness, Flourishing and the Good Life: A Transformative Vision of Human Well-Being (Routledge), Ethical Education (Cambridge University Press), Education as Humanisation (Routledge); and Critical Narrative as Pedagogy (Bloomsbury).   Most recently, Ken and Scherto published the co-authored book Beyond the Tyranny of Testing: Relational Evaluation in Education (Oxford University Press).
