Future of Learning
The Future of Learning is a national event bringing together educators, government, business and community organisations to raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities of rapid technology change – to students, to staff and to organisations. We’re entering a period of rapid change and uncertainty, and our goal is to catalyse the systemic change needed to ensure we can adapt successfully.
We will be running the Future of Learning in 2020 on 28-29 September in Christchurch Ōtautahi, Register for our updates at https://futureoflearning.nz/
Learning City Christchurch
Our current project explores how Christchurch, Ōtautahi, can become a learning city. This involves connecting learning opportunities across the city – businesses, schools, tertiaries, communities – coming together to make a positive difference to our city. It’s connecting the dots of what is already happening, it’s grass roots initiatives, it’s about equity.
Visit the Learning City Christchurch Charitable Trust website to find out about events and how to get involved.
In August 2019 I had the privilege of co-hosting a week long Edutour with Sydney colleague Anne Knock. Anne is an expert educator, learning designer, speaker and writer with a wealth of experience in running international study tours. There is so much happening in Christchurch, Ōtautahi so it was fabulous to be able to showcase some pretty amazing learning, innovation and collaboration.
Check out Anne’s blog post about the tour.
