The MetaPraxis Project, led by Michael Bunce from the University of East London, facilitates the design, development and implementation of reflexive interdisciplinary learning projects in primary, secondary and tertiary contexts.

The plurality of integrated disciplines presents a challenge that can enhance the capacity in learners and teachers to build awareness to think deeply and reflexively about learning to intentionally develop meta-cognitive skills: skills in learning how to learn, how to apply disciplinary knowledge in new contexts, to problem solve, reflect, analyse and evaluate.

These meta-learning environments celebrate the integration of theory and practice across disciplines to enable the development of confident and active learners, by enhancing the opportunity for student agency and transfer.

The project responds to the design principles set out in the OECD Education 2030 (2018) project, focussing on those which relate to learner agency and the concept of competency.
