Meet the OEB2019 Speakers: Laura Czerniewicz

OEB plenary keynote Laura Czerniewicz is the Director of the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT), at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. She has worked in education in numerous roles including strategist, researcher, educator and publisher.  Laura has an ongoing interest in understanding inequality with a view to addressing it in education: “Forms of inequality morph – as one set of challenges gets addressed, new ones materialise as the situation changes”.

She thinks, that “no-one can predict the future of education, because it is such a highly contested space. The way that current trends – such as automation, artificial intelligence and the growing use of algorithms everywhere (including education) – will play out depends on whether free market forces drive and determine what happens in education or whether a counter narrative gathers momentum to ensure that these trends serve the many rather than the few, and  that the public good is reasserted as the number one priority”.
