Beyond Education Summit
The summit which was first held on March 2018 aims to contribute to education agenda in Turkey and beyond. We focus on an original theme every year to discuss different viewpoints on a professional platform. We believe in the importance of handling advancements of our age whilst taking into account the very human nature and centuries old depth of wisdom. The discourse on human creation, ever changing technology and scientific developments should be tackled conjointly so we can have a humanly future.
Thus, the second annual summit of Beyond Education Summit theme will focus on “The Willpower in Education”. We believe the willpower unique to humankind is improvable just as his or her physical, mental and emotional qualities. Some main questions we deal with is as follows: “What happened to society when instant gratification took over willpower? What does strengthening willpower against technological advancements of our age promise us? Could strengthened willpower liberate human beings?
