New Pedagogies for Deep Learning


New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL) is a global partnership that works to: transform the role of teachers to that of educators who design experiences that build global competencies using real-life problem solving; and supports learning communities to shift practice and how to measure learning in authentic ways.

Individual and groups of schools can join and take advantage of the great opportunities the NPDL programme provides. Involving schools from multiple countries across the globe, members benefit from professional and expert guidance.

CORE Education, in collaboration with Michael Fullan and Joanne Quinn, is extending an invitation to schools in New Zealand to join this highly successful project.

Applications to the Ministry of Education for professional learning and development align with NPDL programmes, so as soon as we are notified of your successful application we can help you make a difference.

We work alongside educators to change the role of teachers to that of activators of learning who design learning experiences that build on learner strengths and needs, create new knowledge using real-life problem solving and help all students identify their talents, purpose and passion.
This project fits ideally with the aspirations of schools seeking to work together as a community of schools
