During 2017, a team in Perth was seeking out a case study subject for a forthcoming publication on Australian skills development at the local level and came across a live example of transformational systems change in action, right here in Tasmania.
The Beacon Foundations’ Collective Ed is a work-in-progress example of systems change design and practice, and demonstration of the willingness and commitment of Tasmanian community, education, industry, and government. Currently working with six Tasmanian secondary schools, Collective Ed is designed to help schools try and test new ideas and new ways of helping young people complete Year 12.
This special panel brings together practice observers, designers, and evaluators, as well as school leadership associated with the Collective Ed project. The session is designed to stimulate discussion of, and engagement with the panel's perspectives and explore answers to valuable conference questions from both a local and global standpoint:
What are we learning about collaborating with unlikely partners and operating at the systems level?
How is evaluation practice adapting to work at the system level?
