Stapleford Lecture

osullivaThis lecture, which is hosted by the University of Regina’s Faculty of Arts through the Ernest William Stapleford and Maude Bunting Stapleford Lecture Fund, is being held on Thursday March 26.  Guest-speaker is Brock University associate education professor Michael O’Sullivan (pictured).

O’Sullivan’s talk is titled “The Fierce Urgency of Now: Global Education as a Gateway to Creating Critically Informed, Motivated and Globally Competent Citizens.”

I don’t have a precis of the talk handy, but it seems likely based on the title that O’Sullivan will be championing the idea of education as pretty much the only way we can overcome all the challenges we face in a world that, because of factors such as globalization, advanced technology, ongoing environmental degradation and scientific innovation grows more complicated every day.

The Stapleford Lecture goes Thursday at 7 p.m. in RIC119 at the University of Regina. For more information call 306-585-4226.
