New Pedagogies for Deep Learning

CEC through the Teacher Union Reform Network (TURN) regions is partnering with Michael Fullan, Joanne Quinn and Joanne McEachen on an approach titled New Pedagogies for Deep Learning that aims to articulate and demonstrate how the potential for learning can be realized through new pedagogies in a digital-rich society. CEC is currently pulling together clusters of 35 or more schools to participate in the approach and receive face-to-face support from CEC’s high quality staff and consultants.

This partnership involves schools from multiple countries across the globe and aims to address the key challenge of improving teaching and learning practice to lead to more successful futures for all students.

Schools within participating groups/clusters will build clarity of “New Pedagogies for Deep Learning” and build capacity to shift practices. The schools will act as the driving force and share their learning on ‘what works’ both nationally and internationally.

Why should schools participate?

New Pedagogies for Deep Learning works with educators to change the role of teachers to that of activators of learning who design learning experiences that build on learner strengths and needs, create new knowledge using real-life problem solving and help all students identify their talents, purpose and passion.

CEC provides additional face-to-face support and opportunities through the TURN regions to learn from other schools that are a part of the initiative.

What does it mean for students?

The initiative is centered on six deep learning competencies that define what it means to be a deep learner. Deep learning experiences are engaging, relevant, authentic and build the 6 C’s.

Creativity, Communication, Citizenship, Critical Thinking, Character and Collaboration.

What are the supports available?

CEC is working in close partnership with NPDL through the TURN regions in a coordinated eƒffort to oƒffer support to schools participating in NPDL through cohorts. The benefits include:

• Provides schools with a regional coordinator to support implementation
• Oƒffers opportunities to learn from other schools on the NPDL journey
