Unique opportunity to learn from and collaborate with global experts

Kia ora Michael,

Whether you are an educator looking to improve your teaching practice or a school in the process of forming a CoL (Community of Learning), here is an excellent opportunity to learn from and collaborate with global experts to investigate and evaluate ways in which we can improve our teaching practice and outcomes for learners.

You are invited to join NPDL Global Directors, Professor Michael Fullan, Joanne Quinn and Joanne McEachen plus other education transformation experts, for a unique opportunity to explore leading-edge innovations for deep learning and ways to help your students succeed in today’s complex world.

Meet and work with innovative educators from around New Zealand, along with cluster and school leaders from other participating countries, including Australia, Netherlands, Finland, Uruguay, USA and Canada. This event is all about connecting the dots and building capacity among the participants.

Deeply explore the ideas and experiences emerging from the NPDL programme, and understand more about how it is making a difference for learners globally.

What you’ll gain:


  • Share exemplars of Deep Learning activity and initiatives
  • Learn to apply New Measures for Deep Learning


  • Develop collaborative inquiry and facilitation strategies
  • Build collective knowledge and expertise in the new pedagogies


  • Learn about strategies for whole system change

This event is being hosted by CORE Education, in collaboration with New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL).  NPDL is a global collaboration of schools to build knowledge and practices that develop deep learning and foster whole system change.

As cluster lead for New Zealand, CORE are proud to offer the NPDL programme as part of our professional learning solutions.  We provide support for NZ schools participating in the programme, linking them with schools throughout the world. The philosophies behind NPDL fit ideally with clusters seeking to work as a CoL.

We hope to see you there!
