Term 3 Literacy and numeracy improvement professional learning

​Register now for the webinars running from August, to reflect on effective literacy and numeracy instruction. 

Registration is now open for online learning to improve teachers' knowledge of literacy and numeracy instruction.

Held through the Bastow Institute of Educational Learning, the professional learning program will help teachers to create a school culture with a rich literacy and numeracy focus.

Literacy webinars

Three free webinars aimed at literacy leaders and teachers interested in expanding their knowledge of literacy are now open for registration. The webinar series enriches literacy practice from Foundation to Year 8.

The webinars have been designed in response to teachers' requests for further exploration of how an instructional Workshop Model is being implemented, including examples of the model being used by educators. The Workshop Model provides a student-centred approach to literacy instruction.

Each 90-minute webinar will help teachers:

  • explore practice in action
  • reflect on their experiences and context
  • contribute to group discussion.

The webinars begin on Wednesday 11 August. Although each webinar is standalone, it is recommended that teachers attend all three.

To register for a webinar, refer to the Bastow website.
