Since 2019, the MetaPraxis Project has worked with learning organisations to facilitate the conceptualisation, design and leadership of interdisciplinary learning projects in primary, secondary and tertiary contexts.
The project responds to the design principles set out in the OECD Education 2030 project, focussing on those relating to learner agency and the concept of competency. A central focus has also been the development of meta-intelligence.
The MetaPraxis philosophy views social, collaborative, and reflexive interdisciplinary learning environments as natural contexts within which to establish and nurture complex capabilities, with significant potential to promote agency and transfer of knowledge, skills and understanding across diverse domains.
