Event Details

Dr. Jean Clinton is renowned nationally and internationally as an advocate for children’s issues. Her special interest lies in brain development and the crucial role relationships and connectedness play therein. Dr. Clinton champions the development of a national, comprehensive child well-being strategy including a system of early learning and care for all young children and their families. She is equally committed to ensuring that children’s and youths’ needs and voices are heard and respected.

Dr. Clinton is a Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. She has been a consultant to children and youth mental health programs, child welfare and primary care for more than 30 years. Dr. Clinton was appointed as an education advisor to the Premier of Ontario and the Minister of Education 2014-18.

Dr. Clinton also works with New Pedagogies for Deep Learning and believes a focus on the six global competencies in classrooms levels the playing field for all students. "When students fully engage with the 6C’s of Character, Citizenship, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical Thinking, those students who come from disadvantage have a more profound and deeper opportunity to engage in the learning through collaborative inquiry. They are able to bring their experience and life knowledge, rather than simply being labelled as not having what we 'need them to know.'"
