    This program will look at:

    This is an online conference for teachers to look at how technology may change the direction of teaching and learning in our schools. Teachers doing outstanding work have been selected to present at this conference to help participants explore the possibilities for ustilising different methods of instructions and organising access to resources and learning tasks.

    This conference focuses on the "how" of implementing these strategies in the classroom rather than the "why" or "should we?" questions that often dominate educational technology discussion and training.

    This program will look at:

    This is an online only conference.

Broadly based on the principles of Positive Psychology, Positive Education focuses on the emotional health and wellbeing of the students as a pre-requisite for learning. Resilience. Mindfulness. Positive Mindset. Character Strengths. This is the language of Positive Education; this is what prepares students for learning. TLN has some of Australia’s leading theorists and practitioners on Positive Education for this conference.

    9.30  Workshop 1- choose from:  

    1.1    Utilising the Power of Character Strengths-building a positive learning partnership.

    Sharon Garro &  Joanne Alford

    This workshop will cover how to identify your Character Strengths, ways to spot strengths in others (improving workplace relationships) and various ways to use this classification to building positive learning partnerships.  It will highlight ways of working with students that capitalise on what they are good at rather than remediate areas of weakness.  It will also highlight how using Character Strengths gives us an opportunity to work with the important developmental stage of identity formation, which students (adolescents in particular) are experiencing, to help them see their identity through positive traits and values, rather than problematic ones.

    or

    1.2  Creating a calm & supportive classroom for all students

    Belinda Webb & Marcelle        Cacciattolo

    Marcelle will begin by providing a brief overview of positive education, its history and its importance for teachers and schools today. Following this Belinda will discuss the using a positive education approach in creating a calm and supportive classroom environment for all students to succeed.

    The program will look at:

    Women are a significant majority of the teaching profession and of the education workforce. Yet it is rarely the case that women occupy the majority of leadership roles in education. This raises a number of interesting questions:

    1. Are there barriers that prevent some women moving into leadership?
    2. Is leadership perceived by some as the domain of men?
    3. Is the way in which formal leadership is exercised in schools designed in a way that better suits men than women?
    4. Do women exercise leadership in different ways to men?
    5. How do women attain leadership positions and can they support each other to move into leadership roles?
    This course will explore some of these questions as a way of coming to a more complete understanding of leadership and also explore how to build a network for support and mentoring.

    The course is open to both women and men.

    Presented by Jane Langley

    The program will look at:

    Creating a safe and supportive learning environment with secondary age students is complex and socially and emotionally demanding of teachers. Expert teachers, who consistently succeed in creating these environments, recognise when individuals 'push their buttons' and trigger responses that amplify inappropriate behaviour. The focus of this workshop is learning those trigger points in yourself and choosing more effective responses. It is also about recognising the importance of a whole school approach and the value of collaboration to achieve positive outcomes.

    The program will look at:

    One of the greatest challenges to understanding difficult concepts is understanding the vocabulary that explains those concepts. Integrating STEM and numeracy effectively requires students to build the necessary vocabulary to explain their ideas and explore new thinking. This session will explore ways to build vocabulary and identify the important parts of STEM topics to focus on with students.

    This workshop is mainly focused on a primary setting but can be adapted to suit all age levels

    People who enrol for this workshop, if they have not already done so should also enrol for the companion workshop 'L705 Primacy Numeracy: engaging students with Polya's problem solving strategies' on Tuesday 7th March. A recording of that workshop will also appear on the TLN website www.tln.org.au

    The program will look at:

    Any deterrent to learning, whether a diagnosed disability, an undiagnosed disability, or adverse social or environmental factors disable learning. Many children who are performing at the expected level or even above may still have a disability, but have the skills, resources and resilience to achieve in spite of the difficulties. The teaching challenge is to help all children to learn in spite of the disability. In this course the presenter will explore how she has used Hattie's learning intentions to help students with a learning disability to improve. 

    This course is designed for teachers in primary and lower secondary.

    The program will look at:

    Students on the autism spectrum may experience difficulty when planning and preparing for, getting started and completing work tasks. Poor executive function- the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully- is often a characteristic of autism spectrum disorder. Bearing this in mind, students will benefit from explicit teaching of how to approach work tasks.  For a student on the autism spectrum, this may provide vital pieces to the confusing school puzzle that everyone else seems to know how to fit together. The presenter will provide practical ideas for teaching task skills.

    The program will look at:

    Education is in a state of constant change. This can be frustrating, but if we reframe change as an opportunity to learn, then it can help us to manage. This workshops looks specifically at change in an education context. The workshop will not follow a particular change theory (but will draw on the learning from many approaches). During the course, you will be asked to reflect on your own experience of change and then we will explore how you as a leader can support your team through change processes.

    Course Length: 1 hour

    The program will look at:

    A huge amount of the challenging behaviours exhibited by students have an emotional centre. Identifying, and helping students identify their emotional triggers can be a very productive way of guiding students out of their disruptive behaviours. In this workshop Daniel will explore:

    • How to identify emotional centred behaviour
    • Helping students identify their own emotions
    • Labelling emotions in a non-confronting way
    • Supporting students to find ways of expressing emotions constructively

    with Siobhan Hannan

    The program will look at:

    The Early Learning Frameworks provide a linking set of practices, principals, outcomes and langue to describe the work of early childhood educators. They do, however represent only one way of looking at childhood and early childhood education. In this discussion Max and Siobhan will call into question elements of the frameworks and how they've been implemented into our settings.

    The discussion is likely to cover the following questions

    • Why should I second-guess the frameworks?
    • How much extra time to I spend documenting "links" to a learning framework?
    • What's the "right" way to incorporate the framework?
    • What aspects of the framework do I agree or disagree with?
    • How can I use the framework in a useful way?

    The program will look at:

    Teachers are committed to delivering an engaging and rewarding curriculum for students. They frequently disagree on how this should be done and are often confounded by directives from government curriculum authorities. This can lead to rewarding professional conversations where teachers debate their teaching philosophy and the link to classroom instruction and learn from each other, or it can lead to conflict and disgruntlement. In this course, we will explore strategies that will help you lead your team closer to lively professional conversations.

    Peer based learning is a most effective form of professional development for classroom teachers. Great teachers should have the opportunity to share their excellent practice with colleagues in their own workplace and with a wider network of teachers. 

    In this program participants will be encouraged to commit to a day of professional writing in an atmosphere that is conducive to thinking, writing and sharing ideas. The aim is to create a productive, non-threatening environment for educators to write. John Dewey, the great American pragmatist educator might say that the 'learning is in the doing' and so as part of a restful holiday break, TLN is creating an opportunity for educators to write in a comfortable shared space. No outcomes are specified but participants may commit to:

    • Writing for one or more of the TLN Journal on  New Pedagogies
    • Writing for The Journal of Teaching, Learning and Society
    • Writing for other professional journals within their scope of interest
    • Preparing a unit of work or a specific item required by students as you look to 2018
    • Writing a piece of fiction or non-fiction writing

    The day will commence with a discussion about interests, purpose and tasks and will proceed in an unstructured way through to collegial sharing, editing and proofreading where requested. The main focus is on each individual having the opportunity to write.

    This program is sponsored by the Department of Education and Training Strategic Partnership Program.

    Light catering will be available on the day.

    A Certificate of Participation for 5 hours of PD for the following standards will be issued to each participant:

    Standards Covered

    6 Engage in professional learning

    6.2.2 Engage in professional learning and improve practice

    The program will look at:

    We have high expectations behaviourally of our students and many will just know intuitively how to behave appropriately. Students on the autism spectrum typically don’t learn these things as easily as other students. Hence, you must explicitly teach them and practice them as a class.  We often assume behavioural errors to be deliberate when, in fact, especially for students on the spectrum, they may occur simply because they have not been taught what is expected and have not been reinforced when ‘getting it right’. In this course the presenter will outline approaches to teaching social and emotional skills for students on the autism spectrum.

    The program will look at:

    Recent research has highlighted the difference between being an experienced teacher and an expert teacher. An expert teacher will constantly integrate new knowledge and research into their existing practice. One of the roles for a leader is to support colleagues to continue to develop their teaching practice. This can present challenges for leaders working with experienced teachers. This course will explore strategies for developing skills with members in your team.
