Potters Park Events Centre: 164 Balmoral Road, Balmoral, Auckland, New Zealand

Teaching with purpose in mind

Teachers attending this workshop will revisit the importance of observation, professional discussion and reflective thinking in order to make informed judgments so that they are able to better support and extend children’s learning.

The model of Notice, Recognise and Respond will be used as a basis for ensuring that teaching remains focused on improved outcomes for children. Discussion will challenge and encourage teachers to think deeply about children’s learning rather than defaulting to responding to what teachers observe children doing.

Facilitators: Bridgit Williams

This workshop will include:

  • An exploration of how you view your role as a teacher
  • Strategies for more effectively observing children in play in order to more accurately recognise learning
