    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.

    Positive Education has made a significant difference to the quality of student learning in many school settings. 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.

    Program for the day

    8.30   Login and orientation

    8.50   Welcome
          Kate Chinner- TLN 

    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.

    or

    3.2  Mindfulness and Self-Compassion- being your best to bring out their best.

       Sharon Garro & Joanne Alford

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Presented by Michael Victory 


    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

    6.3.2 Engage with colleagues and improve practice

    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.

    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

    Presented by Michael Victory, TLN
    with Abbey Boyer, Kolbe College

    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.
