Learning outside the classroom

We are exploring more equitable ways to fund students to attend Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom.

We want to build and maintain meaningful links between science / pūtaiao and technology / hangarau educators and learners with science professionals and technologists - both in the classroom and through opportunities that engage the wider community.

Partnerships with tertiary education organisations, Crown Research Institutes, private bodies, science organisations (such as museums, science centres, zoos, aquaria, observatories) and secondary-tertiary programmes that enable participants to experience tertiary-level educational activities are all key for learning outside the classroom.

These learning experiences outside the classroom need to be integrated meaningfully within teaching and learning programmes.

If you're interested in finding more about Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom, information for schools, parents, and providers can be found on the website TKI - Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom.
