What's it about?

ACCELERATOR is an exciting, new, two-day immersive experience, designed to speed up change in teaching and learning by activating innovative solutions - and we’re bringing it to Aotearoa in 2018.

ACCELERATOR activates change through innovation by combining collaboration, speed, and creative abrasion to solve problems that matter. It is a meeting of minds and ideas, where participants collaborate to design new and innovative solutions to education’s wicked challenges.

You will pitch dreams, problems or ideas then form teams to design solutions quickly in a dynamic and high energy environment. Your ideas will be both supported and disrupted as you work with others rapidly to solve problems of teaching and learning. 

ACCELERATOR is facilitated and involves mentors from both education and the innovation industry. Participants are encouraged to bring along their teaching and learning dreams or gripes, wishes or wicked challenges: no matter how big or small.
