Event description

Description

Please join the Murdoch School of Education for a seminar presented by Professor Barry Down from the Murdoch School of Education.

In this seminar, Barry will desribe some key features of a more personalised approach to learning from a students’ point of view, and explain how notions of ‘personalised learning’ are of particular relevance for addressing the persistent problem of student disengagement, especially for students deemed to be ‘at risk’, ‘disengaged’ or ‘troublesome’. Whilst most teachers have seen or heard the term personalised learning, there is far less certainty about what this actually means in the classroom context. Barry will draw on interviews conducted with high school students years 9 to 12, and also interviews with parents and teachers, to explore what kinds of pedagogical, structural, relational and community-related conditions need to be brought into existence in order to engage students in deeper learning. These interviews have been gathered from students attending schools implementing the Big Picture Education (BPE) design for school based on the philosophy of ‘one student at a time in a community of learners’.
