The 21st Century Learning Design (21CLD) framework provides educators with a unique opportunity to build their capacity as teachers by reflecting on their teaching practice and engaging in professional dialogue about how to best support learners in the 21st Century.
The purpose of the course is to provide clarity on how 21st Century skills can be defined, measured and evaluated in the design of learning activities. There is an emphasis on taking theory into practice by using evidence from global research and applying the individual classroom context. The relationship between contemporary pedagogy and technology is also explored, with opportunity to develop new skills and be exposed to best practice examples. All participants will be provided with course materials and a collaborative platform to support them during the workshops and beyond.
Educators will walk away with the knowledge and skills of how to design learning to support the development of 21st Century skills along with how technology can be meaningfully incorporated into lesson design. Each educator will re-design a current learning activity to create a blueprint of best practice. The course will be tailored to each technology program including both software, device and cloud platform. Participants will be provided with a shared OneNote Notebook resource with relevant readings, resources and collaborative activities to support capacity building in the workshops and beyond.
We live in a globalised world which is changing at a rapid pace and is increasingly characterised by environmental and economic uncertainty. To be successful in work and life beyond school, students need a set of cross-functional capabilities that will enable them to adapt to the changing society in which they live. The present research examines the relationship between the 21st Century Learning Design (21CLD) program as a model for professional learning and its impact on innovative teaching practice. Six participating registered teachers in Victoria and Western Australia undertook a survey pertaining to the frequency of innovative teaching practice, the way in which they design learning activities, and their experiences of undertaking the professional learning (21CLD).

"The hands-on aspect and the fact that the content was constantly being reconnected to our own in school experiences. I also liked hearing from other colleagues, their opinions and their processes."
"Bringing everything back to good pedagogy as the basis of our craft and these skills can enhance but don't replace it. It will give us great professional language to use with all staff."
