Planning & Assessing the Australian Curriculum (7-10)



The Planning and Assessing the Australian Curriculum workshop was a great day of professional development, led by HPE curriculum expert Glenn Amezdroz. 73 teachers attended from schools all over Queensland with professionals from early career through to those with 10 and 20+ years of experience. The workshop was well received, with attendees citing the opportunity to share best practice with peers and Glenn's knowledge and engaging leadership as highlights. We also have some great feedback on which to build and develop future sessions.


A quote from one participant: "...  thank-you for the workshop you ran on Monday for assessing and planning the Australian Curriculum. It simplified and made clear the links in designing appropriate units and the expected outcomes of the curriculum. I now have much greater confidence in designing and implementing units of work."

The course will help these teachers to clearly articulate, align and make explicit their curriculum decisions and their judgements of student learning. Through interactive classroom demonstrations and outdoor, movement-based activities, this course will engage with the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education in depth and explore its concrete, real-world implications for teachers planning and assessment practices.

Participants will accrue 5½ hours of professional development that addresses Focus Areas 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3 of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
