In this workshop, we'll use a facilitated design thinking method to collaboratively address key questions/challenges relevant to the post-lockdown return to school.
How are learning environments changing after the lockdown and how is pedagogy aligning to that change?
In this workshop, we will guide you through a design thinking method to get answers to the question above and many more. Participants will have a chance to learn from other schools' experiences and ideas. In addition, they will encounter a visual mapping method called 'Touchline' that allows the re-thinking of learning experiences and the learning environment in an integrated way.
‘Touchline’ is a human-centred design tool that can be used in any context to define and drive genuine change. In a school context, it can be used by school leaders, teachers, or others to re-imagine a ‘new normal’ for learning and learner experience, for engaging with parents, or for any other aspect of school life.
As we go into the new school year in 2022, and start to emerge from lockdowns, we'll use the 'Touchline' method to collaboratively address these questions:
The Touchline method identifies key learner experiences and maps these to 'enabling factors' in the learning environment and how it is used.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have:
