Stories from flexible learning: Our unfolding understanding from the 'unheard'

Wednesday 25 August 2021 7-8pm AEST

Scott Dirix and Kim Brady


Pat Conroy says, 'the most powerful words in English are: tell me a story'. As teachers, we harness the power of stories on a daily basis as we seek to deepen our students' understanding and appreciation of the world. How often, though, do we let our students and their stories deepen our understanding and appreciation of the world?

At Indie School Elizabeth, we are committed to spending the first 12 months of operation in our new school deeply listening to our young people and the wisdom contained within their stories. Through engaging in a 'pedagogy of listening', our alternative learning program has been built on the stories of our students as they have helped us understand our priorities.

In this webinar, Scott and Kim will share the wisdom of their young people, in their own voices, and use these stories to discuss their key priorities in developing a successful alternative learning program.
