R&D parent session 4 - Concept Based Learning

Concept-based learning is an approach to education that moves away from subject-specific content and instead emphasises “big ideas” that span multiple subject areas or disciplines. For example, students may study the big idea of “change” in a variety of areas, from patterns in mathematics, to civilisations in the humanities, to life cycles in science. Concept based learning nurtures a number of key attributes outlined in the Brentwood Learner Profile for example, open-mindedness and inquiry.

This talk will consider the extent to which the world we perceive is actually the world we experience.  This will include considering why people have paranormal experiences, why we are fooled by magic and how fickle we are when it comes to making first impressions of people.
