Venue

The vision of the New Zealand Curriculum (2007) is to develop people who will be “actively involved, lifelong learners”. We know that inquiry-based approaches to learning are a building block for meaningful, innovative learning (OECD, Nature of Learning, 2012). This seminar will explore how the inquiry approach of design thinking offers rich opportunities in both process and outcome for schools to empower lifelong learners of all ages.

This CORE breakfast seminar will

  • Introduce design thinking methodology and mindsets
  • Explore the skills and attributes of the lifelong learner
  • Suggest ways in which design thinking could be used in your school
  • Reassure you that design thinking is more than a fad or a buzzword!

Who will this session be of interest to?

This session will be of interest to primary and secondary teachers and leaders who want to spark lifelong learning in their classroom or school, and/or who are curious about inquiry approaches to learning and want to learn more about design thinking as both a methodology (a way to do things) and as a mindset.

About the workshop

During the workshop we will take a deep dive into a design thinking challenge. We will play with a design thinking methodology and adopt design thinking mindsets to explore a self-selected challenge around creating an inquiry for learners or designing professional learning for teachers.
