Professor McGettrick discusses some of the global values that constitute a vision of education, formed in the Notre Dame tradition in the UK and elsewhere. He will address some of the challenges as well as the opportunities of educating with Christian values in mind in the modern world. This will be a journey of education on which “the footsteps will be more important than the signposts.”
