How to begin and work with a project approach to curriculum
PRESENTER: ANTHONY SEMANN
If we see children as knowledgeable and interested in deep thinking, then a project approach to learning should be on offer as part of our pedagogical practice. Projects move from shallow level thinking to deeper level thinking as teachers and educators work alongside children offering questions which promote sustained thinking. How might project work begin and what is needed to ensure projects are successful. In this webinar we will navigate our way around the topic of a project approach to teaching and learning and how this approach can be documented effectively.
Completing How to begin and work with a project approach to curriculum will contribute one hour of PD addressing the following Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and aligns with the NESA criteria for Elective PD.
