We were very proud to be one of the presenter groups at the ‘2018 Connecting Innovative School Learning Spaces and Pedagogy’ Conference, a leading national conference about learning spaces in schools.
MLC presenters were Alma Tooke, Director of Learning and Curriculum, Cathie Ireland, Head of Junior Secondary School and Lisa Gatliff, Director of Student Wellbeing. MLC’s presentation, titled ‘Learning Spaces and Learning: Empowering teachers to maximise modern spaces’, discussed building capacity amongst teachers to better utilise and take best advantage of new learning environments.
The presentation also consisted of an on-site tour of our Walton Library, which was redeveloped in 2016, the Elizabeth Tatoulis Science Wing, 12HQ and the Cato building.
There was also an opportunity for delegates to observe the proposed furniture, currently being trialled for the new Year 7-8 Learning Centre due to be opened mid-2019. This trial has provided an opportunity for both students and teachers to work with the furniture and provide feedback to the College as its suitability for teaching and learning.
Presenting to a conference such as this reaffirms our position as an innovator in education, and the team enjoyed sharing their knowledge and participating in discussion with fellow attendees.
