Beyond a Turbo Charged Caterpillar - Julia Atkin

Beyond a Turbo Charged Caterpillar: Using Disruptive Forces Intelligently to Affect Transformation of an Outmoded System

Dr Julia Atkin has a passion for understanding how we learn and what supports and enhances learning. Her desire to contribute to the transformation of education for 21stC has involved her in all aspects of educational re-design – pedagogy, curriculum, leadership as well as facilities review and design. Awards for her work include Apple Distinguished Educator, 2000 – 2004, Fellow of the Australian College of Educators and the Sir Harold Wyndham Medal – 2000 in recognition of the contribution her work has made to the learning of teachers and the children of Australia. In October 2003, The Bulletin named Julia as one of Australia's Smart 100 – a list of one hundred people, ten in ten fields, making a difference to Australian society through innovation.

Abstract: Without disruption to a system there is no transformation. Without transformation there is rapid disintegration of a system when external change is rapid. How can we as designers, educators and planners use disruption as a catalyst to bring about intelligent, inspired transformation of learning landscapes?
