Professional development for educators

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

William Arthur Ward

Here are a sample of the workshops I deliver to educators. These workshops can be delivered at a time to suit your operational requirements and in a location of your choice. Alternatively, I do offer public programs and members of your team can join one of those.

Workshops vary in duration from half-day, to one-day, and two-day retreats. Contact me for further information.

In this workshop I show how students can design and make a traditional board game. During the making of their game, the following can be enhanced and developed:

✅ Topic knowledge
✅ Teamwork
✅ Communication skills
✅ Computer skills
✅ Project management

This is a fantastic opportunity for  teachers to learn how to develop creative thinking in their classroom, as well as core skills.

This is a one-day workshop, during which I show participants how to source information and store this information in the relevant software.

I present a number of tips and show how to embed research activities as part of a class. I also show how to use the toolto present in-text citations and lists of references in Word or Pages.

The pathway from vocational education to higher education is often promoted; and in this workshop I present ideas to make this transition a viable alternative and a seamless transition.
I have worked with first year students who entered university via a vocational pathway, and as a result I have identified a number of strategies that can assist students.
