    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

    6.3.2 Engage with colleagues and improve practice
