New Pedagogies for Deep Learning in New Zealand

New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL) is a professional learning partnership run in collaboration with Michael Fullan, that fits ideally with the aspirations of clusters seeking to work as a Community of Learning (CoL) under the IES initiative.

As the Cluster lead for New Zealand, CORE Education is proud to offer the NPDL programme as part of our professional learning solutions. We provide support for the NZ schools participating in the programme, linking them with schools from Australia, Canada, Netherlands, Uruguay, Finland, and the USA.
