CoCo Seminar Series – lets just keep doing what we've always done ...

21 March 2012

Join us for the CoCo Seminar Series for Mark Liddell seminar is titled “Let's just keep doing what we've always done...”

Australian high schools are at a crisis point. They should be preparing students for the 21st Century, instead they are maintaining a factory-style regimented approach to teaching and learning that has been inherited from the Industrial Era. So what should school leaders be doing to ensure that students are provided with the right opportunities and skills?
