Some problems in education never seem to go away. No matter what interventions we put in place, it can feel as though sometimes we are fighting a losing battle. However, what if we thought differently?

Using techniques from the design and innovation professions we might be able to get to the root cause of problems and solve them with insights from those who sit closest to these challenges.

This course aims to help us think more innovatively and ask better questions to help us find better solutions through a range of learnable tools and techniques.

Meet the facilitator

Big Education

Changing the story

We are part of a growing movement of teachers, parents, students and employers who know there is something wrong with our education system. And want to help put it right. In place of a narrow exam-focused system we want something that is more expansive. In place of massive inequalities, we want an education system that nurtures the potential of every child from every background. Our mission is to help more schools and more changemakers develop that Big Education – an education of head, heart and hand. So that we learn the lessons of lockdown and shape a better future for all our children.

How does this course contribute to a Big Education?

A Big Education is one that goes to the root of the problems we face – aiming to cure the causes rather than the symptoms. A Big Education is also one which horizon scans – for instance, looking to successful design and engineering techniques and exploring how to implement them in education settings.
