Unity Grammar – “becoming powerhouses of learner-led inquiry-based learning.”

December 20, 2022 / 3 min. read

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is an educational approach that has recently gained popularity due to its effectiveness in engaging students and fostering critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills. The THINK Learning Studio recently held a three-day project-based learning workshop in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, with the team from Unity Grammar School. This Islamic school is committed to moving away from traditional exam-based education and towards a more dynamic and engaging learning model, focusing on PBL.

New South Wales, where Unity Grammar School is located, has seen a push towards more innovative and engaging forms of education in recent years. This shift is driven by a recognition that the traditional exam-based education system is outdated and does not adequately prepare students for the challenges and opportunities of the modern world. Schools in New South Wales are increasingly looking for ways to move beyond this outdated model and towards more relevant, dynamic, and engaging approaches. PBL is one such approach, and schools across the state embrace it to better prepare students for the future.



The THINK Learning Studio team worked with educators from both primary and upper schools at Unity Grammar during the three-day Discovery Workshop to introduce them to the principles of PBL and to help them develop the skills and knowledge needed to implement this approach in their classrooms effectively. The workshop was highly interactive and participatory, with attendees engaging in hands-on activities and exercises that allowed them to experience the benefits of PBL firsthand. Final design presentations included the complete re-design of existing modules and the creation of new challenges for Unity learners. Educators also used and explored project tools such as Trello and Miro and engaged in samples from HeadRush.

The impact of the THINK Learning Studio’s workshop on the educators at Unity Grammar was significant. These teachers now have the skills and knowledge to deliver more dynamic and engaging projects that inspire and motivate their students. The school’s CEO, Dr Sayd Farook, is excited to see the beautiful scaffolded projects his teams will roll out in the coming year. He is confident that this new teaching approach will help take Unity Grammar’s educators to the future. The TLS team is sure that Unity Grammar will become an innovative education leader in New South Wales as it continues to move away from traditional exam-based education and towards a more dynamic and engaging learning model.
