Event description

Description

It's an exciting time to be involved in teaching and learning.  Innovative schooling models and programs are sparking everywhere and the lines between home, school, community and industry are blurring.  We're seeing universities creating new admissions pathways, employers ditching degree and score requirements, and learners bypassing further education to implement their own entrepreneurial initiatives.  


So how do we best prepare our students to excel in such a dynamic landscape?

This two day masterclass will equip educators with an understanding of contemporary teaching and learning practices that best meet the needs of our learners.  Participants will also explore frameworks for the discussion and implementation of new ideas and ways of working.

Core topics include:

  • The compelling case for change in schools 

  • Research informed learning theory 

  • Contemporary pedagogy and emergent learning programs

  • Agile space design

  • Leveraging technology as a learning tool.
