Designs for Learning – Transforming outdoor spaces for education

Designs for Learning      
Transforming outdoor spaces for education – make this event part of your CPD
Tuesday 23rd March 2010, The American School of London NW8
97% of teachers believe that schools need to use their outside spaces effectively to enhance their pupil’s development* but 80% claim that their school is failing to maximise the potential of this valuable resource.*

‘Designs for Learning’ is a conference that will aim to change this by bringing together the diverse perspectives of all those involved in school capital programmes, providing a unique opportunity to hear from students and teachers about what works outdoors. The conference will provide opportunities to discuss creative designs with landscape architects and question those setting the agenda for capital programmes. The event will also offer delegates tried and tested tools, good practice, tips, techniques, and inspiration.
Landscape architects, architects, local authorities, school leadership teams and all those involved in school capital programmes will look at how to maximise educational impact with minimal input with practical guidance on the key components of great school grounds.  There will be a focus on what CABE and PfS want from outside spaces, inspiration from Scandinavia and the opportunity to hear from teenagers on what they would like to see outdoors.
Speakers at the event will include: Tim Byles, the Chief Executive of Partnership for Schools; Jonathon Porritt the Founder/Director, Forum for the Future; Richard Simmons, the Chief Executive of CABE and Robin Hammerton, OFSTED.

The conference will take place on 23rd March at The American School, London, NW8.
