Peter Hutton: The Case for Change and the Future of Education – Masterclass

March 29, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM WST


Australia’s academic growth has been stagnant for a decade. Over 40% of students are disengaged and no longer accept that the assignments they complete “will be useful to them one day”. Half of all teachers leave the profession within five years and 25% of first year university students drop out.

Now let’s journey over the educational horizon. Learn about the concept of multiple futures, emerging futures and how technology, in particular artificial intelligence, will redefine education.

Discover the latest developments in cutting edge schooling from around the world and what you can do to ‘future proof’ your school or organisation. Don’t be caught on the wrong side of history.

In this Masterclass Peter Hutton will help us to:

  • Explore the narratives that shape the Western Australian educational experience.

  • Consider the emerging issues that will shape the futures for WA Education.

  • Build Insights about the case for educational change.

  • Create a vision of what an ‘empowered WA learner’ could look like.

  • Open innovation possibilities within each participant’s own context.

Meet Peter Hutton

Peter has been a School Leader in four state and independent schools for 20 years. His strength is transformational insight and HOW to implement change in schools. Additional areas of expertise include: change management, student entrepreneurship, alternative tertiary pathways & supporting dyslexic students.

Peter was appointed Principal of Templestowe College (TC) in 2009; a broken school with just 286 local students and 23 year sevens. Today TC has over 1,150 students and was recently recognised as one of the most innovative schools in the world. As a person with dyslexia, Peter sees the world differently, and has spent his life challenging assumptions and conventions. Drawing on the latest research and his unique experiences at TC, Peter is committed to significantly improving the lives of young people by transforming the education system to equip students for times of exponential change.
