As more Australians need to acquire the skills and education to fully participate in the “Asian century”, educators need to be designing learning which enable learners to actively curate and manage their own learning.
This means Australian education and training organisations need to be able to:
- Identify and understand how global meta-trends such as MOOCs are impacting education and training in this region
- Design and develop personalised learning experiences which challenge the current status quo in education and training
- Utilise educational models such as TPACK to enable educators to design learning which is unique for their learners
Originally based on the ten global meta-trends identified by the New Media Consortium, 2013 “Designing Learning in the Digital” participants will help identify trends which are impacting education and training in Australia and the region.
Modelling a ‘flipped classroom’ approach, participants will be required to undertake some of their professional development prior to attending the workshop through videos, readings and forums. This will allow participants to use their time together to collectively design and develop disruptive and transformative learning experiences.
Three webinars following the workshop will enable participants to consolidate and extend what they learned face to face.
Using creative and design thinking, participants will feel empowered to pitch and establish these new ideas within their own environments.
To enable an effective learning environment, program places are limited to 50 people.
