I am pleased to be 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’s fabulous to be able to showcase some pretty amazing learning, innovation and collaboration.

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.
The Learning City Christchurch Charitable Trust launched in October. As yet we don’t even have a website but there is a whole lot happening behind the scenes. Our website will launch early in the year so watch this space.
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.
Join us on 30 September and 1 October in Christchurch, New Zealand for the Future of Learning 2019
