Reinvigorating Your Curriculum Planning
Workshop date, time and location

This workshop is designed to:
- Reinvigorate your curriculum planning
- Provide an opportunity to reflect on the curriculum through the use of Art Costa’s ‘powerful questions’
- Ways to create ‘out of the box’ curriculum
- Creating an action plan: what next?
