Learning That Matters

LTMThe College has launched an exciting new project called Learning That Matters. This project is part of a three year collaborative project between Independent Schools Victoria and USA’s Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Beaconhills is one of the schools taking on the ‘Leading Learning that Matters’ project, as it looks at how it can best implement teaching and learning practices relevant to today’s and tomorrow’s students.

Harvard academics Professor David Perkins and Dr Daniel Wilson have visited the College and will be working with us on the Learning That Matters project.

This project will survey the education landscape at our College. It will examine:

  • What learning matters for the 21st century?
  • What matters to parents, students and teachers?
  • How do we lead in learning that matters?
