Collaborative Classrooms

A Collaborative Classroom is a professional development session attended by teachers and industry participants.  Industry works closely with educators to co-design lesson plans (Business Blackboards),  where genuine industry practices are matched to curriculum and combined with experiential learning ‘hands on’ real world activities.

The lessons, Business Blackboards are then co-delivered in the classroom and included in eBeacon’s Business Blackboard Library.

An instructional guide and tools for conducting Collaborative Classroom sessions, are available for eBeacon members.
