Innovation and Best Teaching Practice



Altura Park School has found their students and teachers are not performing to full capacity. Informed by innovative behavioural research, theoretical frameworks, inclusive pedagogy and constructivist epistemology, two keen pre-service teachers band together to create the ultimate positive learning environment by addressing three key concern areas: rules and regulation, student centred learning, and fostering positive relationships.

Third Place – $250
