FCJ College has started work on its flexible learning space, along with a refurbishment of the administration and office area.
Both projects are going to provide the college with modern and innovative learning and work spaces and will open next year.
Our Year 9 program will make great use of the flexible learning space as we start implementing our project-based learning curriculum model.
This incorporates team teaching, extensive collaboration and group work based on specific projects that involve rigorous investigation and assessment that includes showcasing the student work to the wider college community.
This approach to learning not only engages the learner, but also empowers them to produce a product that meets all the desired learning outcomes in an individual way.
As the concept drawing shows, the flexible learning space is going to offer multiple learning spaces for students and staff to utilise that really promotes autonomy and connectedness for the students.
The goal is for project-based learning to be incorporated into the curriculum from years 7 to 10 during the coming years.
