A Seminar for Primary & High School Teachers
Presented by Dr Bill Rogers

This seminar will help in addressing a challenge faced by many teachers today – Why is this particular class so difficult? What can we do, together, to change things?

They will also share:

  • What has worked/failed with our program?

Igniting A Passion for Learning

$265.00
Igniting A Passion for Learning

Through Student-Centred Teaching Strategies
A Seminar for Teachers K – 12
Presented by Dr Rich Allen

Do something for you!
End your year with an inspiring, entertaining and potentially life changing PD session that will ignite your passion for teaching.
Find out how to harness your students’ energy to drive their success. You’ll leave armed with practical, easy-to-implement strategies, tools and ideas – and energised to embark on new learning journeys with your students in 2020.

Strategies shared in this seminar beautifully compliment an inquiry approach to learning.

About the Workshop
With the Australian Curriculum promoting the development of inquiry skills, teachers require a tool box of strategies to turn their classrooms into effective learning hubs. Inquiry learning requires teachers to run student-centred hands-on activities, facilitate in-depth classroom conversations and become co-learners alongside their students. It’s a world away from ‘chalk and talk’ teaching, requiring strong student engagement and radically different classroom management strategies.

In this engaging, hands-on workshop, Dr Allen models student-centred strategies that harness the latest research in educational psychology.

You will learn how to:

  • Become an effective learning guide
  • Harness movement and social interaction to support inquiry learning
  • Elicit thoughtful responses and productive conversations during group discussions
  • Make sure all student voices are heard
  • Give effective directions to get students organised quickly and keep them on task
  • Use the power of music to energize activities – and enhance learning
  • Tap into, rather than push down, the energy in your classroom to generate positive learning outcomes
