Directions for Education in the Coming Millennium: Where to From Here?

  • Richard Watkins

Abstract

Change is omnipresent and unceasing. In many ways, the circumstances that face us carry the genesis of catastrophe theory: good fortune on the one hand, and peril on the other. It is popular and prevalent to speak about the tests and opportunities arising from change, yet avoid considering the implications for the people and systems which might be most affected. But it is important to reflect on what reactions will take place when people are faced with change. The main challenge that faces us is to make sense of change, to apply the lessons we learn, to remain responsive and not be daunted.
