Developing Your Capacity to Coach Others
Thursday, 4 August 2022
9.00am to 3.30pm (AEST) In-person workshop

Most leadership research points out that one of the key aspects to be a great leader is the ability to manage and grow the capacity of others to achieve a common goal. In schools this is not just about instructional goals but includes areas such as relationship building, being professional, collaborating, and much more.

In this workshop participants will explore the thinking and approaches that will make a difference in building an environment of coaching and contribution. Participants will discuss deficit versus developmental thinking, tribal leadership, and building trust as well as can practice their coaching skills through a range of activities.

First steps to setting up a well-planned STEM Program in your school
Wednesday, 17 August 2022
4.00pm to 5.0pm (AEST) Webinar – 60min

Schools often begin enacting STEM by introducing STEM clubs or activities at lunchtime or after school, having STEM specialist subjects and maker spaces, or even participating in STEM competitions. These approaches are all great ways to begin laying the groundwork for a sustainable STEM program. The challenge for many schools will be moving STEM from these groundwork laying activities to an authentic STEM program that delivers the desired outcomes.

In this webinar Adrian will outline the thinking and planning that schools will need to do if they are going to design a whole school STEM program that delivers. This includes discussing creating a design brief for a STEM program, mindset and capabilities planning, learning ladders, and mapping approaches. Templates for planning will be provided. This is a perfect webinar for beginning as well as experienced STEM teachers.

Designed for STEM teachers in Primary and Secondary schools. 
Registration fee: AEU Members: $40.00 / Non-AEU Members: $60.00 inc GST


Developing Teacher Capacity to Lead and Assess STEM Learning
Monday, 22 August 2022
4.00pm to 5.00pm (AEST) Webinar – 60min

There are a lot of misconceptions about STEM learning and what is important to focus on when leading it and assessing it. In this webinar we will discuss and explore some of the key lessons that teachers need to learn as they take the journey of being effective in enacting STEM learning. This includes contexts, structures and thinking.

We will also explore various approaches to measuring learning progression in transdisciplinary units including the underlying thinking frameworks of the Technologies Curriculum. Attendees will leave with a range of tools they can begin to apply in their own classes.

Developing Student Agency in Learning
Wednesday, 7 September 2022
4.00pm to 5.00pm (AEST) Webinar – 60min

Students who thrive, no matter the learning situation, most likely experienced themselves as the agents of their own learning. However, most teachers and schools have an incomplete understanding of what student agency means and what it looks like. We can’t just give students agency or voice. It is something that is developed over time in a clear, structured way.

In this webinar we will explore the thinking and structures behind developing student agency and self-regulation. You will leave with ideas and approaches you can use to explicitly plan and embed in your practice that develops self-regulated and motivated learners.

Designed for teachers and school leaders in Primary and Secondary Schools.

If you are going to build a highly effective school then you need to have embedded the systems and processes to make it effective.
