The Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change project is investigating how teachers use innovative learning environments (ILEs). These ILEs encompass a variety of physical spaces, technology and learning modes which accommodate 21st century learning.
The project is holding workshops in New Zealand and Australia to find out what teachers think about these environments – what works and what doesn’t. This workshop will provide teachers an opportunity to learn more about the project and assist the project in gaining teachers’ perspectives on the challenges and opportunities for the use of innovative learning environments in schools.
Registration is free and refreshments will be provided.
• What is the project about?
The four year Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change project is a research partnership between the University of Melbourne, the Australian Research Council, the New Zealand Ministry of Education and 14 other education and industry partners.

• How can my school get involved?
We will be conducting a survey of our partner schools – which are all government schools in New Zealand and in NSW, QLD and ACT in Australia, as well as Catholic schools in Parramatta, Sydney. Principals in these schools will receive an email invitation to participate in the survey in early – mid October 2016. From this large sample we will invite principals and schools to participate in later stages of the project.
Teachers from all schools are invited to provide their perspectives by participating in regional workshops, attending other project events, such as the annual conference and signing up to receive the regular project newsletter.
