Documentation and Curriculum Immersion Class

Documentation and Curriculum Immersion Class

2 day curriculum and documentation institute


We have over the past three years presented our now nationally famous curriculum course and our documentation course. Participants have remarked on how these two courses have changed they approach their teaching and also their documentation.  In 2018, we are bringing a unique experience to those wishing to go deeper in their thinking and to unpack in more detail these two critical components of quality practices. 

We have two of Australia’s leading thinkers and facilitators coming together to co-facilitate these two days for you. Bringing their wealth of experience and knowledge Anthony and Kirsty will take you on a journey of transformation as they share their thinking, challenge the ways in which we have come to understand documentation and leave you inspired to change the world one teaching day at a time, one documentation at a time.

This two-day institute is open to anyone interested in rethinking how they approach their work. We will explore the following over two days:

  • Developing a deeper understanding of curriculum and its relationship to teaching
  • Exploring a variety of teaching techniques which deliver positive outcomes for children
  • Exploring the relationship between the EYLF and teaching practices
  • Develop a deeper understanding of project work with children and deep thinking
  • Rethinking our approaches to documentation
  • Developing an understanding of how to prepare for Assessment and Rating in relation to Quality Area 1

On completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the core components of quality documentation
  • Apply observations and other artefacts into a piece of pedagogical documentation
  • Name processes which can establish a culture of inquiry in an educational setting
  • Articulate with colleagues what makes for quality teaching content

This is a not to be missed opportunity, which will leave participants wanting more and inspired to create change in their workplaces.
