At a recent walk around tour of St Andrew’s Lutheran College, the contemporary transformation of learning was evident in major innovative renovations of buildings supporting the contemporary pedagogical journey. The new Centre for Scientific Inquiry as well as the new middle years learning spaces supports teacher teaming, multi-modal activities, agile environments and contemporary experiential pedagogies. The major renovations were guided by teacher and student desires for environments which support their agile experiential pedagogical approaches. During the walking tour Teachers and Leadership appeared energised and very appreciative of the transformation.
Some comments included:
“My senior Science classes can now spread across multiple spaces and students can move in and out of spaces which support their learning”
“I love seeing 90 year 7s going nuts together over rich learning across these agile spaces”
“I don’t see why I (year 9 Maths teacher) would ever have to close any of these doors (large sliders), it is great to have the students work together and across all the areas”
