    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 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.

    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

    Presented by Max Grarock, TLN
    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?

    Application Required

    Applications close 21st July 2017

    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. Presenting formal professional development programs is one method for great teachers to influence professional practice across a wide audience.

    In this program you will be coached and mentored to develop your skills as a provider of professional development programs.

    This program has several components:

    1. A recorded online session to be done at your own pace before attending in person
    2. A face to face session in Abbotsford (Victoria) on 25 September to create a workshop that people are interested in attending
    3. A face to face session in Abbotsford (Victoria) on 28 September to explore different types of PD delivery and work on presentation skills
    4. A hour-long 1:1 consultation session with a TLN staff member at a negotiated time on the 10th of November

    Entry to this course is by application to the TLN - clicking on the register button will start that process. Only 15 places are available.

    Applications close on 21st of July and you will be notified of acceptance by 28 July.

    Teachers from schools and early childhood services are invited to apply. Only 15 places are available.

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