As Zaretta Hammond (2015) asserts, the only way to build a learning partnership between teachers and students is to build a “culture of care”. Taking this idea of a learning partnership a step further in the context of co-designing learning, we ask how can a culture of care be extended beyond the classroom to include parents, families and community? This two session workshop will explore with participants the research supporting the application of co-design principles to the classroom setting. Session 1 will take a deep dive into the research by examining practices for applying co-design to the classroom setting. Session 2 will primarily be an opportunity for reflection as participants share their experiences with applying the principles of co-design to their classrooms.
