This learning event is right for you if you are a school team of 3 to 7 people passionate about creating contemporary learning for your students.


Independent Schools Victoria (ISV) is proud to provide a rare opportunity to directly collaborate with globally renowned educators Dr Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Dr Marie Hubley Alcock, co-authors of the book Bold Moves For Schools: How we create remarkable learning environments. This exciting and highly personalised partnership is designed to combine your vision and context with the work of world-class experts. The aim is to connect a future-focused, student centred education to the best of what you are already doing so that students are engaged in a genuinely contemporary educational experience that keeps joy in the learning, the future in mind and the students in the driving seat. The collaboration runs over an 12 month period giving your team the time to examine your own barriers, develop a clear vision of what modern learning should look in your school and to plan and begin executing your unique bold move.
