Teaching and Learning Conference
This year we are launching an inaugural Teaching and Learning Conference. As CEN grows and develops, we have identified again, our need to speak stronger and clearer into Teaching and Learning into our schools. As we grow teachers as Christian Educators, the frameworks for teaching and learning, biblically focused development of curriculum and a Christian world view on pedagogy, assessment and reporting is paramount to us being faithful to our calling as Christian teachers and leaders in our schools.
This conference, themed ‘Educating for Deeper Learning’ will take place at the same time as the Developing Leaders Conference in Darwin from 6pm Monday 4 September to 12:30pm Thursday 7 September.
The aims of the conference include:
- A celebration of, and challenge towards, deeper learning
- An exploration of distinctive pedagogies and assessment
- An insight into Canadian teaching and learning
- A showcase of rich teaching and learning practice
- A review of Transformation by Design – The next step
- A gathering of teaching/learning and curriculum leaders
Educating for Deeper Learning also assumes that participants have a biblical perspective and worldview framework and will seek to build off that in order to effect enthusiastic and engaged local practice.
We are particularly delighted to be welcoming Justin Cook and Darryl de Boer from Canada to this event. Both men are exemplary leaders in their provinces in Christian Education. Justin is the Director of Teaching and Learning from the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools, and Darryl is the Director of Teaching and Learning at Surrey Christian School in British Columbia. We look forward to having them with us.
I encourage you to at least send a staff member who heads up or leads Teaching and Learning in your school. Yes, that might even be you! Registrations are now open on our website and include an opportunity to visit Gawa Christian School on Elcho Island.
