Advisory Board

We are delighted to introduce the latest line-up of EduWeek Advisory Board members. They are well known and experienced scholars who share passion and interest in education and related fields.

We keep in contact with our advisory board members regularly to answer their questions and hear their reactions to our event content. It’s an opportunity for us to ask: How are we doing?

We also welcome board members’ suggestions about sector priorities we might be overlooking and we invite them to write about issues that are important to them, sharing this content through our Newsletter the Educ8tor and via our digital news platforms.

As in our selection for the first board, we did our best to choose a group that reflects the rich diversity and viewpoints in our sector.
