About Reignite
This webinar is part of Reignite – a series of thought-provoking online events to reinvigorate educational aspirations and inspire thoughtful practices for preparing young people to engage in our complex contemporary world. Find out more.

The COVID-19 pandemic has turbocharged conversations around the future of education in Victoria, while presenting additional impediments for fundamental reform. This session will explore some of the key lessons from the pandemic and how schools can ‘future proof’ students to thrive in an uncertain world.

We will also explore Professor Milligan’s New Metrics for Success program, which works with more than 80 ‘first mover’ schools to generate assessment tools, influence the development of policy and facilitate change. Professor Milligan will share stories from the program and provide a series of provocations for teachers and school leaders to reframe learning in schools to better support young people to navigate the mid-21st century.

Following Professor Milligan's presentation, we will have dedicated time for small group discussion. These learning groups will allow participants to unpack content and leverage ideas for long-term impact.

Learning outcomes

  • Explore key lessons from the pandemic and how schools can future proof students to thrive in an uncertain world.
  • Share of case studies of first mover schools.
  • Participate in a facilitated dialogue concerning the future of education in Victoria.
