Coming breakfast seminars and workshops
This seminar will explore the drivers behind the move towards modern learning environments, provide examples of innovative learning environments, and consider the research into powerful learning that informs design. Mark will demonstrate how teachers can begin using these ideas immediately.
In this presentation Rose Hipkins will introduce the sociocultural concept of “opportunities to learn”, linking this to the NZC learning-to-learn principle, and beyond that to the key competencies. She will introduce a new data-gathering tool that has been used in recent research projects, and discuss the ways it could be used to support teaching as inquiry.
This breakfast seminar will introduce you to the benefits of developing a professional learning network (PLN) to support your teaching as inquiry journey. Anne will share examples of the way in which educators have taken their professional learning to new levels by connecting, communicating, and collaborating with others on a similar path.

The seminar will be followed by a workshop that will enable attendees to extend and practice the learnings from the seminar.
