Look beyond the idea of ‘learner engagement’ and explore what is learning for?

During this webinar, hosted by Valeri Hanon, you will be introduced research that identifies future-focused design principles for schools.   

You will explore how these principles are being brought to life around the world and how they influence passionate engagement of learners as agents in their own learning journeys. 

During this session you will focus on: 

  • the importance of narrative, and how the predominant narrative about schooling is holding us back  

  • how a future-focused narrative needs to be co-created by everyone and what that might look like 

  • how schools that are seeking to prepare for future challenges should employ design principles to guide their practice 

  • the nature and relationship of design principles, grouped around values, operational philosophy, and learner experience 

  • how to begin to practically develop principles in your school.
