Reimagining higher education is one thing, but students do not arrive in tertiary education environments as blank slates. By the time that students arrive at university, they will have already been exposed to well over a decade of received notions about teaching, studying, and learning. It therefore follows that transforming learning outcomes for students be the sole responsibility of the tertiary sector.
Furthermore, the transition from secondary to tertiary education is a profound one, with students having to adjust to an entirely new series of expectations. The way in which secondary learning – K12 learning – is approached will thus have sizeable consequences for the ease with which students are able to adapt to higher education.
As such, we seek to identify and reward the most effective, innovative projects aimed at a K12 audience.
