Learning Beyond 2024

It is a two-day conference on January 19-20, 2024. We are now offering you the opportunity to be part of Learning Beyond 2024 with an open call for workshops and sessions on this year’s theme!

The theme for Learning Beyond 2024 is: Storytelling.

Storytelling has been embraced around the world for thousands of years. Storytelling goes beyond telling and receiving a story. It is a social and cultural activity to share experiences, document history, explore imagination and express through various formats and perspectives. It offers endless opportunities to make an impact, such as preserving culture, reflecting on social aspects, and connecting with others. 

The theme for Learning Beyond 2024 is: Storytelling.

Storytelling is the art of learning through narration. Humans naturally lean towards storytelling as we are recipients of stories. Learning through storytelling is about utilizing this tendency to maximize one’s learning experience. 

In Learning Beyond 2024, we will engage parents, educators and content creators to explore the how, why, where, when, who, and what of storytelling.
