uLearn is designed as a ‘for educators by educators’ professional learning and development conference, one that’s immersive, designed with a bicultural lens and in New Zealand context.
Reimagining Aotearoa’s future requires educators to connect and strengthen their communities, disrupt the status quo and innovate solutions to meet new challenges and effect change.
There’ll be plenty of that at CORE uLearn19. Participants can expect local, hands on and practical presentations, workshops, stories and interactive sessions that will support their own ‘reimagination’ and spark ideas.
Curriculum design, wellbeing and resilience, innovation in Māori students and exploring digital identity are just some of the real-life experiences that will be shared. Watch a collection of our videos to get a taste of who you’ll hear from.
Four school leaders team up at uLearn19 to discuss what they have experienced with their school transformations. “Making schooling more relevant and engaging for students of the 21st century by disrupting what we know and how we’ve done things before,” says Maurie Abraham, Principal of Hobsonville Point Secondary School, and panel facilitator.
Cutting edge technologies and resources will be on display to demo by exhibitors and sponsors – a chance to have interactive learning with experts right there with you. You’ll be able to discuss with them, the benefits and impact the technologies have on engagement and learning.
Kirirarautanga / Citizenship, Whakatōhenehene / Disruption, Auahatanga / Innovation themes set the scene this year. Influential world-class keynotes Shay Wright, Dominic Liechti and Sally-Ann Williams open each day exploring conference theme trends.
Whilst the themes provide the trends and overview, the programme, now online for viewing, allows delegates to delve into the detail with options across loads of content focus areas. There literally is something for everyone, including Early Years, Primary, Secondary, and Māori medium sectors.
