    Presented by Lori Pereira, Geelong North Secondary College

    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. 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

    • Making literacy experiences visible
