Best Practices for Learning in the 21st Century

and how you can adopt them

I was recently invited to speak at the Robotic Telescopes, Student Research, and Education conference at the University of Melbourne. The conference brought together a community of astronomy and physics teachers (from primary, middle, secondary, undergrad), astronomy researchers, education researchers, outreach practitioners, and university professors. It also included an amazing workshop day just for teachers equipping us with the tools we need to do authentic research in a school setting using ‘real’ telescopes. I came away super inspired.

I presented on best practices in high school education in the 21st century. I have been researching these practices as a part of a PhD on how learning institutions can transform to support and legitimize autonomous learning modes or learner agency. The list is not exhaustive and the purpose of the presentation is to get aware of how learning theories and learning practices move hand-in-hand, and how some high schools have changed their design to support learner agency.
