Remembering Dr. K.
Dr. Richard Thomas Krajczar
November 23, 1943 – February 19, 2019
It is with tremendous sadness that we learned of the sudden passing of Richard T. Krajczar on February 19. Known by many as “Dr. K”, Executive Director of EARCOS, and as Learning2 Board Chair from 2015-2017, he was a partner in the establishment of Learning 2.0 in Shanghai in 2007 which was originally co-sponsored by ACAMIS and EARCOS before becoming a fully independent US registered 501c3 in 2015. At this defining point for Learning2, he continued his support and vision as chair of the board. In 2017 he passed this role to Jon Zurfluh and continued as a board member.
Dick remains in our hearts and will be terribly missed. Dick is known to many of us in the international education community and each of us has made a personal connection with him along the way. Through his caring spirit he made a difference and related to all of us in a very unique way. Always encouraging, supportive and forward thinking, a family man, sharing his love for education and profound professionalism with the personal touch, he will be greatly missed while his legacy continues through our commitment to the children and the profession he served.
Learning2 couldn’t be happier to see the conversations from our October 2018 event continue online. This year’s Learning2 talks have been shared and linked many times, and we are happy to see them used as the resources we value them to be.
While we value ourselves as the conference that is for teachers, by teachers–we know that the real magic of the event happens in the weeks and months that follow: the time when amazing educators around the region begin to take ideas and resources and breathe life into them.
We love hearing from participants after the conference wraps, learning needs to be social so we would continue to encourage the use of the #learning2 hashtag on Twitter and Instagram, please do let us know how you have actioned any of your learning, and let us know how we can continue to support teachers.
This year’s feedback was some of our best in our 10+ years of #learning2, and that simply could not have been possible without the enthusiasm of The American School of Japan as our host community. We know how much it takes to organize an event for hundreds of passionate educators, and we know their smiles and attention to detail really made a huge difference. Most importantly of course is the way ASIJ made sure their student leaders had an opportunity to inspire us this year, and their passion was nothing short of remarkable (can we give it up for this amazing student talk again, please!).
The Learning2 teacher conference is at ASIJ and a number of the workshops are led by our own students!#asij #learning2 #teacherdevelopment #learning2asia#studentsteachingteachers #internationalschool #professionaldevelopment #globallearning #japan #tokyo #teachersofinstagram pic.twitter.com/4GstCcgMem— ASIJ (@asij) November 2, 2018
Learning2 is a conference by teachers – for teachers. We are always looking to create conference we want to attend ourselves!
The conference where the narrative matters: come share your story of learning with us
A conference experience
that makes you rethink education
Started in 2007 by international school teachers in China, Learning2 is a global non-profit dedicated to creating and running professional learning opportunities run by international school teachers for international school teachers.
At Learning2, participants are expected to “be different,” “be social,” and “be a connector.”
