Why have we created the Teacher Workshop Series?
In this hyper-rapidly changing, pandemically-challenged world, the demands on teachers are only getting
greater. The Teacher Workshop Series strives be of greatest benefit to teachers by being practical, time
efficient and collaborative.
Practical - focusing on issues and strategies that are highly
applicable to what teachers are facing. We want teachers to always feel that the time they devote is
worthwhile and that they have something tangible to show for it. The bite size nature of the sessions are easy
to consume and not overwhelming.
Time Efficient - being virtual means no travel time! There is a
replay facility for those who are unable to attend live. We have also purposely kept the sessions short in
length to maintain focus on the most important elements.
Collaborative - The forum enables teachers to share ideas and to
communicate in an ongoing way as a community with the presenters and other teachers. We don’t pretend to
know all the answers, but one thing we are certain of is that we’re stronger together when working in a
highly collaborative way.
We are deeply committed to helping boost the educational outcomes of every child. Our resources have
been used in over one hundred thousand classrooms across Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK and US.
