Education and learning have enormous transformative potential for individuals, communities, organisations and society; but in order to realise that potential, we need to "reboot" the way that we currently design and facilitate learning in all spaces - schools, companies, organisations and community. All forms of learning and education should help realise the untapped potential of learners for creative problem solving in complexity, collaboration and personal growth and development. The highly acclaimed 3-day Masterclass, The Art and Craft of Designing and Facilitating Learning Spaces, is an opportunity to start an education and learning reboot.


PERTH: 10-12 SEPTEMBER, 2019

The Kaospilot Masterclass invites participants to explore, experience and be trained in the KAOSPILOT approach to designing and facilitating learning that inspires and promotes creativity, engagement, innovation and risk-taking in learning spaces.


Kaospilot is an alternative business, design and leadership school in Denmark. BusinessWeek has recognized The Kaospilots as "one of the best design schools in the world", and Fast Company has named it in its Startup League's Big 10, "preparing you for the fast moving startup economy".

More than 2500 educators, program directors, learning designers and consultants, trainers, facilitators and edu-preneurs have participated in this Masterclass across 40 countries.


During the Masterclass, participants will be introduced to the unique ‘opportunity based pedagogy’ and competency model of the Kaospilots, which has been developed over 25 years from working with young dynamic learners and leaders and by exploring the potential in transformational education.

Participants will have the opportunity not only to talk about their ideas for pedagogical and methodological change, but also practice and develop them! Through imaginative interpretation, “hacking” and creative application of your curriculum, new pedagogical and methodological processes will be explored which will challenge and "reboot" approaches to learning and content delivery. You can read the full description here.

Bring your real projects and program challenges, your openness to unlearn and learn, your questions and imagination, your experience and your beginner's mindset, your curiosity to connect and learn with others also seeking to transform education.

Don't just take our word for it - here's what some past participants had to say

"The Masterclass was amazing. Loved Ramon’s facilitation and the Kaospilot way. Drop PowerPoint, embrace flow and fluidity. Let learners own their experience."Nicole Lee, Consultant and Coach, Transformational Change

"The Kaospilot Masterclass experience was wholly engaging, exhilarating and exhausting - and I didn't want it to end. It was a massive injection of creativity and positivity meshed into a brilliant opportunity to meet and work with a fun bunch of like-minded individuals. Moving back from overseas, it was also nice to meet local people interested in the same innovative learning space as I'd met in Europe. However, the biggest continued takeaway is the daily doses of 'ah ha' moments that I'm immediately putting into practice."Leona Norris, Educational Designer, RMIT University

"I am absolutely convinced that the Kaospilot's educational model is in the right track for the construction of both, a new society and economy, because the course not only provides the foundations for understanding a more efficient way of learning, but also encompasses a human centered approach in which values, practices and knowledge are merged. As a result, this course fosters the engagement and the sense of ownership in learning, and furthermore, creates qualified happy people". - Gabriel Hernández Martrou, Doctoral researcher in design education, Lancaster University UK.
