Our learning network

Our wider learning network includes communities across Australia where many children are developmentally vulnerable and where collective impact work is growing strongly. This learning network is open to others to join, and also includes our partner organisations.

Peer to peer learning

Together with our seven partner communities the broader learning network of the OC Collective have come together to connect with peers across the country to share stories and learn from one another in the interests of vulnerable children in Australia.

We know we can’t do this work alone, so we are building our shared understanding by connecting with more communities to accelerate towards our bold goal.

Peer to peer learning

We are running a pilot learning program with a new partner, Peer Academy. Peer Academy use a collaborative consumption education model to help people gain skills and knowledge by learning from their peers. The pilot will allow us to explore how we can share the expertise and insights that already exist in our partner communities, as well as the insights and research of our partner communities and organisations, plus outside experts in a number of fields. Watch this space for more on the pilot as it happens!

Innovation laboratories

We are in conversation with Rich Harwood, of the Harwood Institute in the US, planning a series of Public Innovation Labs in Australia later this year. These labs use applied learning, real-life scenarios and action, not theory, to help people learn how to make the community the reference point for their choices and actions. The labs are designed for people  who are leading or supporting work to help address community problems – the Harwood Institute calls these people public innovators.
