This Wednesday (7 October) sees the RSA's Annual General Meeting held at the House on John Adam Street, and the Education and Design teams have joined forces to invite RSA Fellows to contribute their ideas to a potential new cross disciplinary endeavour.

The RSA design and education teams are exploring ways that a devolved capacity for rigorous design can be applied in education, to increase the capacity of teachers and schools to create the curriculum, learning environments and learning experiences that best meet the needs of their young people. Rather than leave it up to professional designers, we want to see teachers and heads capable of designing for themselves.

Timetables, school buildings, lesson plans and curriculum are all already areas where teachers do their own designing, although they might not think of it in those terms.

What would happen if we designed the school day with how children best learn in mind? What does the classroom designed for enquiry based learning look like?

We are looking for Fellows to help us think of more ways that design can be applied to education, and then for ideas about how the RSA and the Fellowship can make it happen!

Add your ideas to this blog and we'll bring them up on the day, or if you are an RSA Fellow please do come along to the House at 2.30pm to join the discussion!

Have a look at what else is going on on the day, and register your attendance.
