The Gonski Institute Evening with Ted Dintersmith and Friends

Most Likely To Succeed reveals the growing shortcomings of conventional education methods in today’s innovative world. The film explores compelling new approaches that aim to revolutionise education as we know it, inspiring school communities to reimagine what students and teachers are capable of doing.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Professor Pasi Sahlberg. Panellists will include Ted Dintermsith, Stephanie McConnell and Puter Hutton.
