Future Teachers Professional Development Workshops
On Monday, July 5th, Giannina Hoffman, the Senior Years Leader of Learning STEM and SACE Coordinator presented two Professional Development workshops to our Final Year Bachelor of Teaching and Master of Teaching Students. In the first session, which was open to all our students, Giannina gave an interactive workshop on the nuts and bolts of the SACE. Given her previous work at the SACE Board, our students were able to gain valuable insight into this, preparing them for their teaching careers.
In the afternoon, Giannina's workshop focused on all Subject Outlines related to the Stage 1 and Stage 2 Science curricula. Students engaged well and the workshops were well received by all participants.
On Tuesday, July 6th, our HASS C&M tutors, Matthew Muscat (Senior Years Leader of Learning at St Paul's College), Simon Baker (Nuriootpa High School), and Reegan Mastrangelo (Adelaide High School), led a full-day PD session for our final year HASS students, focusing on the Australian Curriculum (7 to 10) and HASS based SACE subjects in Years 11 and 12.
Students undertook workshops from the Virtual War Memorial of Australia, Stage 1 and Stage 2 Legal Studies, Modern History, and Geography. They also participated in a Q&A session with 7 past Alumni, who are now successful Early Career Teachers, gaining further insight into the teaching profession.
