World renowned education expert Dennis Shirley, a professor in BC’s Lynch School of Education, has published The New Imperatives of Educational Change: Achievement with Integrity (Routledge, 2017), a clarion call to move beyond the standardized testing and marketplace competition that have become pervasive in school systems to focus instead on creating the conditions that will encourage all students to become critical and independent thinkers. In his new book, Shirley presents five new imperatives to guide educators and policymakers towards a re-thinking of what it means to teach effectively and to learn deeply. Shirley is editor-in-chief of The Journal of Educational Change and co-author of the book The Mindful Teacher. He has led professional development workshops for school leaders in six continents.
