Engaging Learners’ for teachers working in the SEE program
November 15 4:30 pm – 5:45 pm
This workshop will be short, sharp, and contain the occasional laugh. We’ll talk about what it takes to keep learners engaged and how planning for it can become a regular and time-saving activity.
The title of the workshop is engage.
The topic is about how you can incorporate some repeatable and reusable activities that will dray your learners in, through curiosity and enjoyment.
There will be a small amount of theory (Bybee and Hattie, et al) but mostly, the discussion will be practical.
Four or Five activities will be outlined and discussed, and Lindee will, she hopes, convince you that they work with beginners with low formal education, or learners in a Certificate IV who wish to engage in further study.
This stuff works and it’s fun.
Lindee Conway began teaching adult migrant and refugee arrivals in Melbourne in the mid- 1980s. That’s a long time ago, but she still recalls how joyous – and terrifying – it was to do this important work.
She has since worked in adult education, community education and TAFE for more than 3 decades.
In the last few years, she’s been a teacher coach and mentor and now delivers workshops for educators on a range of topics (but EAL, Literacy and Community and being Local, are her abiding loves)
