A New College, A New Pedagogy – Aotea College


A New College - Moving from cell/horizontal years to open/vertical years in one step

Join us to hear how a learning environment approach to property development can lead schools into new pedagogies.

Speakers Kate Gainsford, Aotea College Principal and Architect Brian Elliott from Designgroup Stapleton Elliot will discuss the pedagogical and design principles behind this recently completed project which  initiated a deep change from silo, horizontal learning to an open, vertical learning model in the school.

The event starts at 5:30pm with networking and refreshments, followed at 6pm by the presentations and a tour of the new facilities.
