How might we embed reflection into our practice to transform and value what we do? 
In this after-school workshop for Teacher Librarians, Teaching and Learning Leaders and Classroom Teachers, we will use the AITSL Reflection Guides to reflect on the purpose, impact and value of special events, such as Book Week, on our teaching practice, our interactions with students and our wider school community.

Learning environments move at a rapid pace, with new initiatives regularly introduced to an already crowded timetable and demands on a teacher. It can be challenging to find the time to reflect on our own practice, and as a professional learning community.

Join us for a thought-provoking afternoon of reflection, collaboration and sharing, to connect with like-minded colleagues to learn and grow.

Please bring one or two of your favourite books from the CBCA 2022 Shortlist and your laptop or device for online resource sharing.

Afternoon tea and resources included.

NB Our host school has requested that masks are worn within the school campus.
