Learning and Teaching in Innovative Learning Environments

This online, self-paced course supports teachers as they initiate and teach in innovative learning environments (ILEs) in their own schools.

Participants will work through six modules addressing practical strategies for enhancing learner engagement, collaboration and deep learning in ILEs.

They will explore the role of digital technologies and flexible learning spaces and consider how using these tools in ILEs might enhance student learning outcomes in their own school context.

Learning activities are practical and applied, encouraging participants to trial new teaching practices in their own ILE and reflect on their practice with a school-based supervisor.

This course is ideal for teachers who are learning to implement new contemporary learning and teaching practices in existing, refurbished and new schools.
