In 2021, the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) introduced its Framework for the Assessment of Creative Thinking. This aims to help teachers "measure their students’ capacity to engage productively in the generation, evaluation and improvement of ideas that can result in original and effective solutions, advances in knowledge, and impactful expressions of imagination.”
DATTA Vic has developed this Teaching Design & Creative Thinking Masterclass for primary teachers to help them innovate in the delivery of Design & Technologies and celebrate the opportunities this curriculum offers to make their students critical and creative thinkers, skilled at solving authentic problems. This program aims to inspire participants to take a new approach to Design-based Learning and consider how they can facilitate their own students’ creative thinking capabilities.
The program includes a full-day, in person workshop at Whittlesea Tech School on the 27th October. There will then be two online sessions on the afternoons of the 3rd and 17th November. Participants will have their final session at the DATTA Vic annual conference, Designing the Future, on the 9th December, where they'll celebrate the outcomes of their design sprints with delegates - and get to attend the rest of the event at no cost.
Places are free but are strictly limited, and are via application. Note applications close on October 7th.
Preference will be given to low SES and regional schools, however the information included in your personal statement will also be taken into account.
Thanks to the Department of Education & Training for their support for this initiative through their Strategic Partnership Program
