Demonstration Schools in the USA: How Research Works?
Presented by Dr Garth Stahl
Our challenge is to identify the best international learning models and practices of ‘demonstration’ schools based on a university campus and how these use cutting edge approaches to inspire new generations of educators, counselors/psychologists, architects, etc. We address this challenge as a research problem, the answer to which will provide the University of South Australia staff and school-based educators with a detailed analysis of how to proceed with the first stage of the development.
Schooling in Europe
Presented by Sue Gaardboe
In this seminar Sue Gaardboe discusses the innovative schooling and design practices in Europe from her perspective as an educator. Teaching methods and student success are linked to so many things - community expectations about the way children behave and are treated; the standing of teachers and the role of schools in the community; funding models and national or societal expectations of priorities for funding, to name only a few. But even within these limits our examinations can help us to see our own place in the world, and help us see directions that could be of value.
Screens, Streams and Breaking Out
Presented by Jill Colton
This seminar invites the audience to consider how screens, break out spaces and the timetable were associated with learning, openness and flexibility in this site. It explores how metaphors of knowledge as fountains and streams were linked to changes in how and where students learn and follows ‘student-produced presentations’ and ‘teacher-produced rubrics’ to describe how innovation and inquiry were being mobilized. However, it also invites an exploration of structure, boundary, divergence, and the dominance of content/disciplinary knowledge to discuss some of the challenges and conflicts that these educators faced when they trialled ‘innovation’.

Developing Insights into learning - what can learning analytics offer?
The high growth in adoption of education technologies such as learning management systems (LMS) across the education sector has resulted in alternate and more accessible data on learning and teaching practice. As with most online systems, student interactions via the LMS are routinely captured and stored. These digital footprints can be ‘mined’ and analysed to reveal insights into the student learning process
