Liverpool Boys High Teacher wins creativity across the curriculum scholarship
The NSW Premier’s Copyright Agency Creativity across the Curriculum Scholarship was awarded at Parliament House on 28 August 2019.
Jane Wilson, a teacher from Liverpool Boys High, won the $15,000 scholarship which she will use for a five-week study tour to research creative and innovative teaching practices used in ‘Big Picture Schools’ throughout Australia and North America. Liverpool Boys High is the first school in Sydney with a Big Picture Academy.
Big Picture is a cross-curriculum learning framework that focuses on students finishing secondary school with a Graduation Portfolio that gains them university entrance, employment, or further education and training. Big Picture now has over 100 schools in its global network including 44 schools in Australia.
Its innovative and rigorous learning design is renowned for a personalised and collaborative approach to education that supports students to set a career vision and work towards it during the school year.
The Premier’s Copyright Agency Creativity across the Curriculum Scholarship, supported by Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund since 2012, is designed to enhance and enrich the learning experience of students in the classroom.
It presents a unique opportunity to develop skills and knowledge, supporting those teachers who display creativity in their methods of teaching across any area of the curriculum.
