GLOBAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS SUMMIT

DATE: 19TH JUNE 2006
VENUE: JO RICHARDSON COMMUNITY SCHOOL, CASTLE GREEN, GALE STREET, DAGENHAM, RM9 4UN

DEAR COLLEAGUE,

AS WE INVEST IN OUR SCHOOL ENVIRONMENTS LIKE NEVER BEFORE WE NEED TO SHARE BEST PRACTICE, CHALLENGE OURSELVES AND REALLY MAKE THE LINK BETWEEN DESIGN AND BUILD AND TEACHING AND LEARNING.

THIS SUMMIT WILL HEAR FROM SPEAKERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD AND THE UK ON WHAT WORKED FOR THEM, WHAT DIDN’T AND WHAT CAN WORK FOR US. IT WILL PROVIDE REAL CASE STUDIES OF HOW LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS CAN HELP TO SUPPORT AND TRANSFORM TEACHING AND LEARNING.

AIMS OF THE SUMMIT

  • TO EXPLORE DEVELOPING TRENDS IN TEACHING AND LEARNING WORLDWIDE AND HOW THESE ARE SUPPORTED BY THE DESIGN OF LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS
  • TO SHARE BEST PRACTICE
  • TO DEVELOP A COMMON LANGUAGE BETWEEN ALL PARTIES INVOLVED IN SCHOOL DESIGN AND BUILD
  • TO PROVIDE A FORUM FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES
  • TO CAPTURE FINDINGS IN AN “IDEAS BOOK” TO BE PUBLISHED AND DISSEMINATED POST SUMMIT

THE DAY WILL INVOLVE DELEGATES IN CASE STUDY PRESENTATIONS AND DISCUSSION SESSIONS LED BY BOTH EDUCATORS AND SCHOOL DESIGNERS FROM ACROSS THE UK, EUROPE, AUSTRALIA AND THE USA.

THE SUMMIT WILL HOST THE UK LAUNCH OF THE OECD/ PEB COMPENDIUM OF LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS AS WELL AS THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF THE BRITISH COUNCIL FOR SCHOOL ENVIRONMENTS (BCSE) – A FOUNDATION FOR LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS.

THE SEMINARS

EACH SEMINAR WILL INCLUDE AT LEAST TWO CASE STUDY PRESENTATIONS BY A KEY THINKER, ARCHITECT OR EDUCATOR AND FOCUS ON INNOVATIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS FROM THE UK AND AROUND THE WORLD. THEMES WILL INCLUDE SUSTAINABILITY, ICT, SEN, COMMUNITY USAGE, SMALL SCHOOLS, LEARNING IN OTHER SETTINGS AND REFURBISHMENT. PARTICIPANTS ARE ABLE TO ATTEND TWO SEMINARS EACH; ONE IN THE MORNING AND ONE IN THE AFTERNOON.

A TOUR OF THE NEWLY OPENED JO RICHARDSON COMMUNITY SCHOOL WILL BE HELD AFTER THE SEMINARS FOLLOWED BY A LAUNCH RECEPTION FOR THE BCSE.

THE SUMMIT RECEPTION WILL FINISH AT APPROXIMATELY 18.15. JO RICHARDSON WAS AN INSPIRATION TO MANY PEOPLE. WE HOPE THIS DAY INFORMS AND INSPIRES YOU.

BEST WISHES,

TY GODDARD, SCHOOL WORKS/BCSE.
