Description

A professional learning course for teachers wishing to develop knowledge and skills in Languages curriculum.

This professional learning program is held over 7 days throughout 2018. It is designed to provide teachers with a collaborative and supportive environment through which they can engage with contemporary approaches, and future challenges associated with the implementation of the new Australian and Western Australian Curriculum for Languages.

The program provides a rich blend of theory and practice that is designed to have immediate practical applications within the classroom context to facilitate cumulative language learning.  The structure of the program supports teachers practising new approaches and provides structured opportunities for feedback to help language teachers reflect on, question and improve their practice.

This course will be particularly advantageous for those teachers who have had limited opportunities for professional learning within the area of Languages. Many Languages- One Methodology course has been offered by AISWA over the past decade and assisted many practising teachers to upskill and engage in valuable Languages methodology training and is being offered again in 2018 by popular demand. The course content is similar to the semester-long unit Teaching Second/Foreign Languages (EDN556) at Murdoch University and participants may apply for advanced standing upon completion of the 7-day course and successful completion of additional assigned tasks.

The program is underpinned and informed by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) Standards.

It is expected that teachers registering for this course will attend all 7 sessions.

Course dates:

Phase One (3 full day workshops held at the AIM WA)
7th, 8th & 9th March 2017

Phase Two (2 full day workshops held at AIM WA)
21st & 22nd May 2017
