The Learning Environments New Zealand and Tārai Kura Online Series is for school leaders and designers of redevelopments and new school builds, and will be of interest to all school leaders in Aotearoa. The focus is on sharing innovation, provocation and current or future-focused topics. This event is all about "Inclusive design - creating spaces that work for all learners".

This series features a flipped approach. To allow time for interactive discussion with our speakers and each other, you will be provided with a short 10-minute video reflection from our speakers to view prior to the event. This video will be sent to you before the event.

In this online event, we will explore different perspectives and experiences of designing inclusive spaces for all ākonga. We will have the chance to hear top tips from the speakers in the pre-video, and then the online event itself will provide us with the opportunity to dig deeper through presentation, facilitated discussion, as well as Q & A.

Join us and the speakers as we learn from and reflect together on these questions:

  • How can we create/design flexible spaces that suit a range of needs, now and into the future?

  • What advice would you give leaders undertaking a design process?

  • In what ways does, or might your school support inclusive practices and specific learner needs through its use of space and resources?

Co-chairs: Di Cavallo and Shona Smith
