It’s really important to share your work and achievements.

Sharing gives you an opportunity to gain feedback and reflect on what you’ve trialled and found out along the way. Sharing can spark innovation and collaboration and help guide your approach. It will allow others to celebrate your hard work, and share their own ideas and experiences with you.

How can I share my idea with others?

Think about sharing your experiences within your school or immediate learning community and with your community of practice, other educators, and the Department.

We would love to hear about your work, trials or ideas. To share with us please use our online form, see: Innovate Here - Share with us

We appreciate anything you choose to share and will follow up with you for more information. We may also ask if we can share your story with others through this site.

How can I create something to share?

There are many ways to share the story of your trial with others but the objective of each is the same; to successfully convey your journey and findings to inspire a professional discussion about it. The final product might be anything from a podcast to the structure for a learning walk, but the simple process outlined below can be applied regardless:

  1. Planning - Decide on who, what, where, when and how. This will help you to get the best results from what you share.
  2. Meeting - Involve the other people who will be contributing. Discuss and agree on the focus of the observations, protocols regarding feedback and use of the material produced.
  3. Noting - Keep notes as you go to ensure you don't forget details of the trial. These can be text or other media like images, audio or film.
  4. Creating - Choose the best format then draft, review and edit your story. Share it with those involved and seek feedback to improve the final version.
  5. Sharing - Find the best way to get your story to your intended audience. How and where you share it will have a major impact on the level of feedback and discussion on your trial.

Once you have shared your story, review the process you undertook and any products, feedback and discussion it has stimulated. Celebrate your successes and note areas for improvements.
