Leadership in Science (K-12) for Proficient Teachers

A two-day course: Monday 17 September & Monday 26 November, plus 2 days of your choice (you will shadow a partner for one day and they will shadow you for the next)

You’re already a great teacher, you have the fuel. We’ll give you the skills in this course, the oxygen, to create heat and light.

Enrol in this course to:

  • strengthen your skills inside the classroom and support your peers.
  • start or progress your leadership journey.
  • be a part of the growing movement to embed more scientific inquiry in schools.
  •  form coaching relationships.

Expect to see more combustion – more light and flames – from your practice and the relationships you form with like-minded teachers.

This course is also for Primary Teachers!

Primary school teachers who have, or want to develop, expertise in Science & Technology and achieve accreditation at Highly Accomplished are encouraged to attend. The contacts you can make here can help you springboard into Science & Technology

Program:
Day 1: At Kirrawee High School ; 5 hours where participants are introduced to a science teaching project that they will develop and implement. The project will be based on identified NESA standards that the participants wish to achieve. They will then discuss the scope of the project and find a coaching partner. Participants plan their project. A workshop on coaching will be run. Coaches and a shadowing partner will be chosen according to common interest/geographical area.

Day 2: One partner shadows another participant for the day at their school. The participant will be implementing their project for part of this time. The shadowing partner will observe and provide feedback regarding the targeted project and other issues that may be identified.

Day 3: The other partner shadows the participant for the day at their school. The participant will be implementing their project for part of this time. The shadowing colleague will observe and provide feedback regarding the targeted project and other issues that may be identified.

Day 4: At Kirrawee High School ; 5 hours where participants explain their project, its implementation and the feedback provided and any ways in which they have modified their project as a result of their experiences and the impact on the students’ learning.
