International Award for leading learning initiatives
Saint Stephen’s College has been acknowledged internationally as a front runner in blended learning with the presentation of the D2L Brightspace Excellence Award at the 2015 Ignite Asia Pacific (APAC) conference on the Gold Coast.
The College was one of three institutions in the region (also Victoria University and Singapore Management University) recognised for innovative education experiences using the Brightspace platform created by the EdTech company D2L. Saint Stephens was highlighted as the: “front runner in taking a structured, well-planned, organisation-wide drive towards blended learning. The school embodies the true value of flexibility and has made huge strides in creating engaging experiences for its students. It currently offers more than 160 courses via its Brightspace-based learning platform, all of which were carefully developed to be simple to use...” Director Asia Pacific D2L, Marlon Herft, said award winners had delivered platforms that drove self-paced, catered learning which advanced teachers and students beyond the limits set by the traditional education method. “In doing so, they have created environments relevant to the digital age where teaching and learning surpasses classrooms and lecture theatres, and fosters better outcomes by enabling more resources, insights and predictability than ever before,” said Mr Marlon. Headmaster, Jamie Dorrington, said the College was renowned for delivering rich learning experiences through visionary technology and world-class facilities.
