Join education experts as we explore creative pedagogical approaches, immersive assessment to improve student preparedness, confidence & capabilities.
The Stage 6 Conference aims to develop pedagogical content knowledge, broadening our existing teaching strategies and addressing some of the specific areas of content where teachers feel there is a lack of clarity in the Syllabus. We will focus on continued improvement in teaching practices to support student performance.
Educational research is impacting our syllabuses. How do we integrate these influences into our classrooms? What do we keep doing the same and what do we need to change?
The focus in 2022 will look at some of the big ideas in science education research and the impacts we can enact on our teaching practice.
To better support the teaching of the NSW syllabus, the program will be centred around four themes:
Day 1: Thursday 23rd June, 2022
- Theme A: The Teaching Profession
- Theme B: Engaging students
Day 2: Friday 24th June, 2022
- Theme C: Assessment and Data
- Theme D: Thinking Scientifically
There will be separate subject streams for each of Science Syllabus, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, EES, Investigating Science & Science Ext.
STA Professional Learning Communities – collaborative sessions.
In these workshops we will collaboratively design evidence-based practice to teach difficult concepts, whilst examining our beliefs and assumptions: Why are we doing this? Why are we doing it this way? What pattern of behaviour is helping us and what is not? How am I ensuring personal mastery? How am I sharing my expertise? What have I improved lately? How do I know that works?
