The Living Consensus framework includes five key teaching and learning strategies that are facilitated through student-centred learning. This means that students are involved in activities and discussion during their programme of study. The students are involved in many decisions with the teacher about how we should work together as a class.

This way of working with students helps develop personal skills and attitudes that can be transferred to other learning experiences and their future workplaces. These skills include: Independent learning skills that help the students learn to think and act for themselves and show initiative in the workplace. Problem solving skills that help students to think through and solve problems they may see in the work place.

Team work will help students to learn to work in teams like they will do in the workplace. Developing an understanding of different cultures and world views will help the students to work with people from other countries and understand customers from around the world. Developing ethical practice will help students think about and agree on how they should conduct themselves in a global workplace. This will help prepare them for business with people from around the world. Developing self-awareness will help students to notice when they could be doing something better and enable them to self-correct their practice or behaviour when necessary. Self-direction will help students to set and achieve their own goals for learning and the workplace.

Employers in New Zealand look for graduates with these skills and attitudes. During this presentation we will talk about the five key strategies that help students to develop them.
