Event description
Are our national priorities for educational innovation the same as our European cousins? This FLANZ / ODLAA interactive workshop will examine the Open University’s 2022 Innovating Pedagogy report and negotiate its relevance to our socio-cultural contexts in Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia.

Your input will be focussed around the applicability of the innovations suggested by the report to your educational context. We will evaluate their potential impact and the effort required to implement them. We may want to dismiss some of these as hardly innovative at all, or to suggest that they are too aspirational. The results of our collective deliberations will provide the basis for future reflections.

Please have your mobile phone to hand (or a second browser window). Ensure that you have read the full report or the brief overview, written by the workshop convener, Dr Simon Paul Atkinson, prior to the workshop.

The recording of this webinar will be posted to YouTube. You will be able to change your name when joining the webinar and can interact in the chat if you don’t want your voice and image recorded.
