Lucy Crehan will draw on her experiences inside classrooms in some of the world’s top-performing education systems to share three ways in which schools organise for learning: how they organise lessons, how they organise students, and how teachers organise themselves. She will draw on OECD data and existing research to share some suggestions for what Swedish teachers and policy makers might learn from these countries within their own unique context.
Lucy is an education explorer and international education consultant. She taught science and Psychology at a secondary school in London before completing a Masters in Education at Cambridge. She then spent time working in schools and living with teachers in five ‘top-performing’ education systems; the basis for her book, ‘Cleverlands: the secrets behind the success of the world’s education superpowers’, one of The Economist’s ‘books of the year 2016’. On her return, Lucy wrote a book on teacher career structures for IIEP UNESCO, and spent a year as part of a team advising foreign governments on education reform at Education Development Trust. She now works as an independent consultant, and is conducting research for another book.
Her lecture at PML18 will be in english.
