Creating innovative learning environments is more than building or adapting the spaces. It’s about enabling collaborative teaching styles that are flexible, supportive and responsive to students’ learning preferences, needs, experiences and values.
Changing Spaces will focus on the principles that underpin change momentum and on the conditions, culture and inclusive practices that enable students, teachers and their communities to thrive.
From changing mindsets and disrupting the timetable to digital enablement and student agency, there are workshops to suit all interests. Workshop themes include:
Universal Design for Learning - a framework to guide inclusive design and practice
Recognising potential barriers to learning and wellbeing, and ways to ease cognitive stress and overload
Building strong teams - growing capability and collective efficacy
Design thinking - tools to implement change
Culture and collaboration - what makes a shared space successful
Mechanisms for student voice that impact on teacher decision making
How differentiated learning impacts student data
Teachers as evaluators - lens on the data
The importance of dialogue - infrastructure, children, teacher, parent voice
