Take a closer look at Walker Learning in action through our Virtual Study Tour with the second day focussing on Taking Learning Outside and Embedding Aboriginal Perspectives
Day 1 (full day): Walker Learning Virtual Study Tour (Preschool to Year 2)
The Virtual Tour takes you to a school where you will observe students and teachers in action, demonstrating the Walker Learning Approach. You will observe: tuning in, reflection, the learning environment, focus children and reporter and photographer. Further professional learning by our consultant follows, including unpacking the core elements of the pedagogy and using a virtual showcase of the core elements from Walker Learning classrooms across Australia.
Day 3 AM: Taking Learning Outside - Practical Techniques for Teaching the Curriculum Outdoors
Studies suggest outdoor curriculum experiences pose a lower infection risk than those done indoors, so moving learning outside post-COVID lockdown could be just the ticket for health, wellbeing, and engagement. This practical, workshop-style PD will look at taking play and investigations outside. We will look at how to engage children and enhance learning experiences outside as well as presenting you with practical strategies for creating outdoor learning opportunities.
