Design  for Learning Workshop:
2020 Vision for the 2020’s Learner
This workshop presents a design thinking approach to addressing the issues facing school leaders today. Working through the process – What is? What if? Next Steps?

These professional learning opportunities are participatory, hands on and fun, with input and insights from local and global experiences. Anne draws on her insight into the international educational landscape, including schools, higher education, libraries ad museums.
