We often talk about how we purposefully design our learning, wellbeing and co-curricular experiences at Camberwell Girls. We believe that this is imperative in a changing landscape where our education needs to be relevant to provide students with the essential fundamentals as well as prepare them for their future.

When designing learning and experiences, a number of factors need to be considered in addition to essential knowledge and skills. These include the development of individual or personal competencies, mindsets and the development of transferable skills that will be drawn upon during a person’s lifetime. As they make sense of things, we want our students to successfully apply their learning to new and emerging situations.

At Camberwell Girls we have designed our own evidence-based learning framework or architecture called By Design, that guides our learning design both within and beyond the classroom.

Dr Charlotte Forwood, our Director of Learning Design and Development has prepared a video to explain By Design to you in greater detail. We have also included a link to our By Design overview booklet for your reference.

At Camberwell Girls we are committed to ensuring that our students are engaged in educational opportunities that will provide them with the ability to demonstrate the knowledge, skill sets, values and mindsets that are needed now and into the future.

With best wishes,

Debbie Dunwoody
