Disruption, Reading Culture & Rethinking The Future of School Libraries [TICKETED EVENT]
Join Stefanie for an interactive day of learning focused on rethinking the role of the library in our school communities. This workshop is designed to offer library leaders and educators a chance to reimagine their work in the context of an ever-changing information landscape.

The day will be divided into three sessions:
Disrupting the student experience
Change is the only constant and as educators it is our role to ensure our students are prepared for the world (and the workforce) of the future. This session focuses on the changing needs of library users, with a spotlight on how libraries can add value to the student experience.

 Readers Who Teach
The role of teachers in modelling a love of reading is one of the key factors in motivating students to read. This session focuses on the provocation for change ‘readers who teach’ and explores research mapped strategies to support teachers in increasing their awareness of their own reading habits and practices.

The future of school libraries
Inspired by R. David Lankes work on new librarianship and use of conversation theory, this session challenges participants to re-think the mindset and personal strengths of whose who work in school libraries, and start a conversation about the future role of libraries in our school communities. It includes dedicated networking and collaborative planning time.

21st Century Skills Assessment Masterclass [TICKETED EVENT]
There is tremendous interest in the teaching and assessment of “21st Century Skills”, but educators still find it challenging to integrate them into their existing teaching units and to assess and report on the skills that students are developing.

In this one-day Masterclass led by Dr Claire Scoular, participants will learn how to apply an assessment tool from the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) to a teaching unit of their own.

In Part 1 of the Masterclass, participants will be introduced to the ACER General Capabilities assessment and teaching framework. This will include the conceptual underpinning of the framework as it applies to the assessment of collaboration, critical thinking and creative thinking. It will include how the assessment framework is built around a problem-based learning approach and will provide examples of the kinds of tasks that are included in the assessments. Participants will learn how the framework can be applied across a range of year levels and subject areas.

In Part 2 of the Masterclass, participants will take part in a hands-on activity in which they will apply the framework to a unit of instruction that they have designed. In groups, they will work through a guided process to produce a draft of a possible problem-based assessment of the general capabilities of collaboration, critical thinking and creative thinking.

The “ACER General Capabilities assessment” is generalizable and is applicable to teachers of students of any year level and curriculum framework.

This one-day workshop will look at the different the tenets of concept-based curriculum and instruction with a focus on mathematics for Pre-k to 12. The answers to the following questions addressed

  • How is knowledge structured and how can we utilize that structure to develop the intellect?
  • How can we move to a three-dimensional curriculum and instruction model that allows us to compact the overloaded curriculum, and help students learn both factual and conceptual knowledge with greater depth and rigour?
  • How can we design instruction and learning experiences to encourage synergistic thinking between the factual and conceptual levels of knowledge and understanding?
  • How do we scaffold thinking to deeper and higher levels?

In many schools, the word ‘research’ is synonymous with ‘library’. Whilst there is no magic formula to teach research skills, the library team at Trinity Grammar School has successfully designed and implemented a ‘Research Wheel’ targeted at helping students become confident with the research process. This workshop outlines the teaching and learning tools for each of the seven stages of research, with a particular focus on the value of the final stage, reflection.

Educational Neuroscience for All
This presentation will demonstrate that developing a working knowledge and shared understanding of educational neuroscience is one of the most transformative acts that a school can undertake, with the power to enhance teaching and learning at all levels.   Mind, Brain, Education (MBE) science is a rapidly developing field and it is essential that teachers and administrators stay informed with current research findings and actively seek opportunities to translate research into practice in their unique learning environments.  Through this workshop, we will explain the fundamentals of neuroscience and how it underpins all great teaching and learning, challenge common neuromyths and guide participants in creating a plan for their next steps with implementing MBE science in their contexts.  This will be beneficial for all teachers and administrators, who will leave this session with current research, references and opportunities to continue developing their understanding of MBE beyond the scope of this session.
