NZC Online is excited to announce the launch of NZC spotlights, which are PLD support packages that explore aspects of The New Zealand Curriculum. Presented on Google Slides, NZC spotlights include short readings, videos and follow-up activities

Further resources are suggested at the end of each spotlight for those who want to access more information.

NZC spotlights are designed for teachers and leaders in both primary and secondary schools. They can be used during staff meetings, department or syndicate meetings, Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako workshops, and teacher-only days. Individual teachers can use NZC spotlights to reflect on their own learning journeys and to support teacher inquiries.

NZC spotlights can be led by an external facilitator or by someone from within the school. The sessions are scaffolded and include speaker notes to grow teacher capability around workshop facilitation.

A NZC spotlight is designed to take approximately 45–75 minutes to work through. Schools may choose to download and personalise the slide presentation to suit their context and needs.

Spotlights now live

Three spotlights are available to date and more will be released over coming months.
