An Interdisciplinary, project based and

research-driven teaching and learning environment

The Learning and Innovation for a New Queensland (LINQ) Precinct was designed and established to ensure the development of the creativity and innovative capacities of students, which are essential in an ever-changing global economy. 

The fundamental approach to learning undertaken within the LINQ Precinct is based on encouraging students to undertake the critical interdisciplinary skills, which will enrich their ability to be successful entrepreneurs/designers in the future. Therefore, courses are based in authentic contexts and therefore allow students to explore industries of interest.

This involves the encouragement and support of collaborative approaches to learning. A Design Thinking Framework has been developed which underpins the delivery of curriculum within the Precinct. 

Sheldon College's LINQ Precinct was featured on Channel 7’s Queensland News Bulletin. Sheldon College Staff and students provided an insight as to how the new facility will assist in developing the entrepreneurs and innovators of the future.

What is STEAM?

STEAM at Sheldon College is the amalgamation of curriculum areas and the re-development of essential subject knowledge delivered in a cross-disciplinary nature through innovative teaching models such as project-based learning. 

Sheldon College’s STEAM program is geared towards students creating with technological resources rather than consuming technology. Students apply knowledge to develop interactive models and computational solutions using emerging technologies to foster future proof skills relating to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and infused with Mixed Reality. Our STEAM inspired curriculum goes beyond students coding and encourages them to become Visual Art Makers, Mixed Reality Engineers, Digital Thinkers and Do-ers, Robotics Engineers, Designers of 3D printed objects for Maths and Science simulations. Sheldon College STEAM programs aim to produce enterprising students who can solve complex challenges and a strong emphasis is placed on students being exposed to authentic practices and skills that can later serve more complex and innovative endeavours.
