Notice reference #: 1HAH3v

Professional learning and local networking opportunity for 1st and 2nd year provisionally certificated teachers.

EDconnect is offering this exciting series of workshops again in 2021. This forward-thinking, personalised professional learning is thoughtfully and intentionally designed to inspire leadership competencies, encourage effective instructional practice, and support fluency with strategies for learner success. Delivery is interactive and demonstrative being face-to-face in a small group setting (with the ability to move online if required). Sessions and workshops feature experiential instructional practices, purposefully designed to promote future ready skills and deeper learning.

If one-size-fits-all learning isn't good enough for our students, why is it good enough for our teachers? We are intensely critical of the professional development we participate in and have developed a course that practices what we preach. This is not a course that is built entirely on predetermined modules, rather it is responsive to the needs to participants and their schools. 

In this course provisionally certificated teachers will engage in:

  • place-based approaches to help deliver a culturally responsive curriculum and develop an understanding of their local environment
  • experiential learning allowing teachers to identify opportunities to develop practice to meet learner needs
  • a local Professional Learning Network that they can add to as they grow. a local Professional Learning Network that they can add to as they grow. a local Professional Learning Network that they can add to as they grow.

This course is run over 5 dates and a minimum of 10 participants are required for the course to proceed. Each session runs from 9am to 3pm with catering provided.
