headerThe initiative

Learning Frontiers is a collaborative initiative created to transform teaching and learning so that every student succeeds in an education worth having.

The program brings together clusters of schools and other interested parties – ‘design hubs’ – to explore professional practices that increase student engagement in learning.

Design hubs explore teaching, learning and assessment practices that are built upon four design principles for engaging learning: connected, co-created, personal and integrated.

    header  Design Hubs

    There are currently five design hubs testing powerful practices that increase engagement and improve achievement and life outcomes. These hubs are located in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney.

    Hubs use user-centred design approaches like prototyping to design deep, relevant and pervasive learning for students. They collaborate to generate a robust evidence base about impact within and beyond the hub, and provide opportunities for parents and community to participate in the development of practice.

    headerHow to get involved

    Schools, individual teachers and other organisations can participate in Learning Frontiers by:

    • providing expert advice to schools working within design hubs
    • participating in research activities with your students
    • suggesting, trialling, evaluating and iterating new promising practices for engaged learning in your own school context
    • convening a network of peers to discuss student engagement and consider how to apply practices emerging from Learning Frontiers in your own contexts

    Please register your interest using the form to the left if you would like to be kept up to date with  activities and participation opportunities.
