SUM07-21 Research-informed Literacy Practice (2nd - 6th class): Learning in a Professional Community


This course is aimed at teachers in mainstream classes 2nd to 6th who wish to develop their professional knowledge of reading, writing and oral language. Drawing on evidence-based research the course will explore instructional approaches to literacy, cross-strand integration, and 21st century learning.

Through an interactive professional community of practice, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their current practice and consider what literacy can look like for their own unique contexts in the mainstream classroom.

There will be three evening follow-up sessions during the year in October, January and April.
