Wintec brings in global education developers

In July next year, Wintec is bringing the first Kaospilot workshop to New Zealand. The workshop for tertiary and secondary school teachers will explore the Kaospilot approach totransformational education design.

The partnership began when Wintec team leader Julie Ashby visited Kaospilot's Danish headquarters in 2016.

"I had read about the extraordinary work Kaospilot were doing in transforming education and I wanted toexperience what they were about in person,”says Julie.

"At the time we weredeveloping a new teaching and learning framework at Wintec and the Kaospilot pilot approach has strong synergies with the work we are doing here toactivelyencourage user-centred, future focussed teaching and learning."

In 2017, Wintec launched Ako: Teaching and Learning Directions, a programme of transformational change in response to the need new ways of teaching and learning. Ako is based on theprinciples of authentic, learner-centred andinquiry-based learning.

Kaospilot was founded in Denmarkin response to the emerging need for a new type of education that could help young people navigate the changing reality of the late 20th century.Twenty-five years later, Kaospilot is working worldwide to achievepositive social change though personal growth and enterprise by helping creative leadersdesign education for thefuture.

In April this year, Julie and Wintec facilitator Dallas Snapeattended aKaospilot Masterclass in Sydney designed to developleaders to bring autonomy, risk-taking and action-based learning to education.

"Taking part in a Kaospilot programme requires you to take adeep dive into experiential learning, learn to think like a student as well as a teacher and a pioneer, and consider working across a faculty rather than taking a sole focus on asubject," says Julie.

“It’s very much like taking a strong dose of reality and adding playful, creativeelements to developlearningthat delivers equally on skills, knowledge and mindset."

The two educators are ona three year journey to becoming Kaospilot-trained facilitators. Once trained, they will deliver Kaospilot programmes at Wintec to an internal and external audience.

“We’re looking forward to sharing this experience outside Wintec to our tertiary and secondary teacher networks,” says Julie.
