Early Career Teacher
Participation in this full-day face-to-face seminar will enhance early career teachers’ pedagogical knowledge and toolkit so they walk away with a variety of resources and techniques at their fingertips, including how to implement inquiry-based learning.
Participants will have opportunities to consider how to overcome some of the challenges they have encountered early in their career while learning how to create positive, collaborative, and engaging learning environments for their students.
Questioning, feedback, and the effective use of data are just some of the key strategies covered, together with the implementation of approaches to ensure the learning needs of all students are prioritised.
The first two or three years of teaching can be the most fulfilling and rewarding, but they can also be the most overwhelming. This seminar is an extension of the Beginning Teachers program and is designed to continue to support teachers in their first few years of teaching to give them every opportunity to develop their classroom practice further and thrive in the profession.
- tips and strategies from experienced educators that can help improve student outcomes
- an understanding of innovative and engaging pedagogical approaches such as inquiry-based learning
- classroom management strategies
- approaches to differentiation so the learning needs of all students can be catered for.
