The Public Pedagogies Institute is currently working on another Pop Up School event that will take place in Werribee on September 1, 2017. This project has evolved from our highly successful Pop Up School which was held in Footscray in 2016. The Werribee event will be part of the launch of the Wyndham Learning Festival, September 1-8, 2017.
As part of the project, we are currently meeting and talking with people who live and/or work in Werribee. These conversations are about understanding the knowledge of Werribee, and how that knowledge can be demonstrated in the form of learning and teaching in the Pop Up School event. As with the Footscray event, we are not only interested in the knowledge that resides in Werribee, but what of that knowledge is important to remember in the future? In short, the beginnings of what we describe as the Werribee Curriculum.
More news to come.
