Dr Marie Murphy understands schools’ professional learning needs.

Workshops and presentations

It is challenging to plan relevant professional learning that caters for the range of development needs of all staff. This challenge is now more complex with teachers working toward accreditation based on the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Teachers working towards higher levels of proficiency are required to demonstrate their skill across all elements of the standards and may require further professional development to do this. It can be difficult and costly to source relevant teacher professional learning. Teacher professional learning is most effective when developed and supported daily in the school. The result is consistent quality practice.

Why supplement your professional learning program with workshops and presentations?

From time to time-specific input is required to address identified gaps in the school’s professional learning repertoire. This is particularly relevant with new curriculum being introduced and in areas identified as requiring further growth. In such cases schools may require external input to provide appropriate professional learning that is focused on the specific needs of the school and occurs at the school.
