Pre-conference workshop – Moving Beyond ATAR
With Professor Jim Tognolini, Professor Sandra Milligan and Ben Rein
This workshop will examine traditional barriers to innovation for the education of 15-19-year-olds and the emerging possibilities for a move beyond ATAR, as well as the implications of this change for the secondary and tertiary sectors. Of special interest will be a consideration of the development of learner profiles that represent the full range of student learning and attainment in this transition stage. The workshop will feature insights into the work of the Mastery Transcript Consortium, an international network of schools who are codesigning an academic transcript that supports mastery learning and reflects the unique skills, strengths, and interests of each learner (https://mastery.org).
Post-conference workshop – Chris and Summer’s Sunday Session
With Chris Harte and Summer Howarth
After a day of provocations and generative discussions, come and put some of that thinking into action with a facilitated design sprint aimed at using Design Thinking to generate actionable ideas which can have a rapid and ongoing impact in your own communities. Perhaps you will redesign your approach to assessment and feedback or develop a collaborative set of skill micro-badges with another school. Not only will you leave with the start of (or even a completed) actionable solution, but you will also learn the elements of the Design Thinking process that you can bring to bear on any challenges your learning community faces. You bring the challenges and thinking, and we will bring the process.
• Deeper understanding of the design thinking process as a way to design human centred solutions
• Connections with other schools tackling similar challenges
• A prototype solution to a meaningful challenge you define
