One journey, many pathways

2-4th October, Arts West, The University of Melbourne, Australia.

In 2019 Transitions will be a 3 day event in Melbourne focusing on the journey schools and teachers make as they reimagine and redevelop their learning spaces. 

Transitions 19 begins with a proposition – research is showing innovative learning environments (ILEs) are not a magic cure, but evidence is mounting that they constitute a powerful tool that – if used well – improves student educational experiences. We can now say schools (and teachers) navigate a transformative journey as they reimagine their learning spaces.

  • What is involved in making the journey from traditional to innovative learning environments?
  • What is the latest research telling us about how teachers can be supported on this journey?

Call for abstracts for 15 minute presentations is now open to graduate researchers, academics and professionals.  

Registrations will open in May.

What is Transitions 19?

Transitions events have been held in Australia, North America and Europe by the ILETC project team in 2017 and 2018. These events have provided a forum for researchers from across a range of disciplines in education and design share their findings, engage in discussion with practitioners and inform the work of the ILETC project.

Transitions19 will be a working conference with participants actively involved in discussion and workshops. 2019 is the third and penultimate year of the ILETC project and findings are emerging that will guide improved spatial-educative practices in schools. Workshops will provide a deeper understanding of ILETC findings and test if ILETCs resources and tools have currency across all aspects of learning environment use. 

The program will include 3 days in Melbourne with Day 1 and 2 featuring research presentations and workshops and Day 3 offering a tour of innovative schools in the Melbourne area. A draft program will be available in May.
