The Journey from Agents to Agency: Unleashing Learner Potential and Empowering the Future

The Journey from Agents to Agency: Unleashing Learner Potential and Empowering the Future

Join world-renowned author, speaker and mentor Lee Crockett for an insightful exploration of the transformative power of freeing the hearts and minds of learners as detailed in his groundbreaking book, “Agents to Agency: A Measurable Process for Cultivating Self-Directed Learner Agency.”

As the global educational landscape evolves, learning paradigms are undergoing a significant shift. Learners are transitioning from passive participants to proactive agents in their educational journey. This keynote dives deep into the heart of this transformative journey, demystifying the shift in returning responsibility from teacher to learner.

Using “Agents to Agency” as our guide, we will unpack the three facets of the Learner Agency Trifecta™ that are critical in this shift. Lee Crockett will present inspiring case studies that illuminate profound impact and joy in empowering learners to become the true architects of their education and masters of the art of learning.

In a world where the future of education is being rewritten, this keynote promises not just insights but a roadmap. A roadmap to guide educators in nurturing learners who are not just informed but empowered, not just learners but leaders of their educational odyssey.

Most importantly, it’s not about me … All that matters is what the audience needs to realise their true nature, highest purpose, and most sincere wish for the future.”
