Project reports

We will be releasing findings from our data collection throughout the project as reports and fact sheets.  Further in depth analysis will be published in academic journals and will be made available on this site.

Teacher workshops report

The ILETC project conducted workshops between November 2016 and May 2017 in each of the project’s geographic regions. The purpose was to establish existing teachers perspectives and insights on concepts central to this project. This information, when combined with literature reviews and a preliminary principal’s survey, will ensure ILETC is addressing the most pressing needs faced by teachers when inhabiting ILEs. These unique workshops were structured around ‘design
thinking’ principles by a team of researchers from the School of Design, Monash University.

Survey Report

The first phase of the project focused on collecting baseline data on the types of learning spaces, teaching practices and learning in Australian and New Zealand schools.  This report outlines the survey  of school leaders conducted in late 2016.  This survey data  then formed the basis for the next stage of the project – developing detailed case studies of schools which identify strategies for using space as a teaching tool – what work’s and what is needed.

Pilot project 

Prior to the ILETC project commencing, a group of  masters  students (studying Masters of Fine Arts Transdisciplinary Design) led by Prof. Lisa Grocott, at the Parsons School of Design in New York were commissioned

to conduct a pilot study on teachers’ motivations for change. This pilot resulted in the development of a teacher workshop called ‘Archipelago of Possibilities‘, which has now been used by the ILETC project with over 100 teachers, with plans to further develop this into a kit which will be available on our site (contact use for more information).
