Refreshed Curriculum in an Urban World

Professional development (PD) Auckland

Posted: 07 February 2023
Notice reference #: 1HAZHv

In 2023 leaders are thinking about the implications of the curriculum refresh for their schools. We have developed a workshop to help navigate the complex landscape in Tāmaki Mākaurau.

Join Cognition Education in a half-day workshop to explore how to develop, embed, and sustain a local curriculum that weaves together the shared vision and aspirations of diverse communities in a bicultural urban educational context.

Sessions will explore:

- Weaving together knowledge, skills, and dispositions in the curriculum

- Weaving people, history, and culture in education

- Refreshed curriculum in a bicultural and diverse urban setting

We welcome leaders from Auckland Primary, Intermediate and Secondary schools to join us as we showcase outcomes and success stories of local curriculum from across the region.
