Immersion Day

We have created our Immersion Day program to allow you and your team the opportunity for genuine insight into how people, places, and pedagogy can be transformed for a new era. The day offers a deep-dive tour of NBCS learning programs, spaces and technology with a focus on leadership, vision and culture. 

Your team will be personally hosted by a member of Senior Leadership. They will facilitate a process so that, rather than become overwhelmed, your team can identify key insights that will translate with clarity into your unique context. We keep the day flexible, with plenty of scope to target particular areas of interest - just let us know before the day. 

Key Features

Time to Investigate

We include up to 2 hrs for the campus tour, giving you scope to see a broad range of spaces and programs. As we walk and talk you'll have opportunities to gain authentic perspectives from students, staff & leadership through conversation. After the tour we have plenty Q&A time to pursue themes of particular interest. 

The Keys to Our Portal

We include in the tour a guided exploration of the key technologies we use to facilitate personalised learning, especially our intense use of Moodle for online learning and flipped learning, our BYOD program and Google Docs. We even give you guest access to our student & teacher portal for further investigation in your own time.

 

A Facilitated Process

We embed the day within a facilitated process that is designed to help your team identify key insights that can feed into your own unique context. We provide supportive scaffolding for critical conversations where the "heavy lifting" of the day occurs, helping your team work together to collectively make sense of what you've seen.

One of the tools we use for this process is our design/engage kit - a powerful tool for envisioning a change journey to engage your staff, students, and wider community. You walk away with access to this kit to use as an ongoing tool.
