Activate Change With ACCELERATOR

One for my Kiwi readers.

Join us for two days of breaking the rules
ACCELERATOR - Play. Think. Activate Change.
Kia ora Michael

Would you like the opportunity to grow new ideas? And maybe break some rules? ACCELERATOR is for you! This exciting, new and immersive experience is designed to speed up change in teaching and learning by activating innovative solutions.

ACCELERATOR utilises a methodology designed to:

  • shift mindsets
  • kick-start innovative thinking
  • find creative solutions, faster.
What is ACCELERATOR?
ACCELERATOR activates change and innovation by combining collaboration, speed, and creative abrasion to solve problems that matter. It is a meeting of minds and ideas, where you collaborate to design new and innovative solutions to meet education’s wicked challenges.

You will pitch dreams, problems or ideas then form teams to design solutions quickly in a dynamic and high energy environment. Your ideas will be both supported and disrupted as you work with others rapidly to solve the problems of teaching and learning. ACCELERATOR is facilitated and involves mentors from both education and the innovation industry.

Participants are encouraged to bring along their teaching and learning dreams or gripes, wishes or wicked challenges: no matter how big or small.

Play. Think. Activate Change.

Evidence-Based Creative Teaching: Making Sense of Teaching

From yesterday’s inbox…

evidence1.png

Don’t miss this series of five blog posts on Evidence-Based Creative Teaching (EBCT) written by Dennis Sale, Senior Education Advisor for Singapore Polytechnic and Principal Investigator for a 2-year Ministry of Education research project, entitled ‘Enhancing Student’s Intrinsic Motivation: An Evidence-Based Approach’.

EBCT is a Total Pedagogic Framework from which teaching professionals can creatively design and facilitate high impact learning experience across all delivery modes.

In this first post, Dennis recalls some events (stories) of his own school experience to set the scene and context for tackling an educational puzzle so aptly framed by the management guru Peter Drucker:

 “Teaching is the only major occupation of man for which we have not yet developed tools that make an average person capable of competence and performance. In teaching we rely on the ‘naturals’, the ones who somehow know how to teach.”
