This book will open your mind to the changing experience of schooling, and highlights new and different ways to help those whose needs simply don’t fit into the usual mould.  With contributions from leading academics from Canada, America, the UK, the Netherlands, and Australia, this internationally-minded book helps the reader to reflect on the ways young people are taught, and presents possible alternative approaches. Global social and economic changes and technological developments are driving the need for change within education, so that we can better cater for a diversity of young people. This book offers an overview of where we are now and where we might want to go in the future.

Doing pedagogy differently in practice

As argued in Chapter 1, the much broader range of young people who now are expected to participate in senior secondary schooling requires renewed consideration of pedagogical approaches. Chapters 7, 8 and 9 have outlined some of these considerations from a research perspective.

This chapter complements those discussions through two practical case studies that demonstrate how pedagogy can be done differently in practice. The first case study is provided by Jann Eason, principal of a vocational, ‘second chance’ school in Australia. The second case study, by Linda Milbourne, extends her work in Chapter 9.
