Our decades of experience have shown us that many teachers feel a tension between what they do and the impact they have. Teachers have confided that they often feel confused, anxious and lack the time to fully focus on what matters most to them – the learning of their students.
In this interactive program, we’ll help you reflect on your own teaching methods and recalibrate your practice in ways that are highly beneficial to those learning from you. You’ll also walk away with a toolkit of strategies and approaches to maximise your impact.
Your host for this program is Janelle McGann, one of Western Australia’s most sought after presenters and leading Teachers as Architects facilitators.
She will outline high-leverage strategies for learning that enable teachers to make better use of time, develop safe and supportive classrooms, use successful questioning approaches and utilise feedback to strengthen teacher and student learning.
This is one of Australia’s most energising and uplifting teacher development programs based on the groundbreaking book, Teachers as Architects of Learning, by Gavin Grift and Clare Major.
What past participants have said
‘There were lots of “ping” moments. I have been working for many years and this has really helped me pinpoint ways I can develop the impact I have on the learners I work with. Has relevance from kindy to secondary. Best PD (professional development) I have done in ages.’
‘Very inspiring professional learning – thanks so much. Would love to run this with the whole staff…’
‘The self-assessment tools! An uncomfortable journey in some ways but I feel utterly inspired with much more clarity. I loved that I had something concrete out of the program. I have a new exciting focus and a plan of action.’
‘Teachers as Architects has given me strategies I can use to improve the areas I believe I need to. I particularly liked the way there was no judgement/wrong or right way.’
‘Thanks so much for helping me to push out to my growth edge.’
