PRODUCTIVE PEDAGOGIES

Restructuring of the Queensland education system in the 1990s gave rise to a new educational model - the New Basics Project. An integral part of this scheme was a fresh emphasis on the value of quality teaching/learning, termed "productive pedagogy" which is based on four premises: 1) intellectual quality, 2) connectedness, 3) social support, and 4) recognition of difference. Productive Pedagogies looks closely at this educational model.
