Program Description

‘If students understand what they are to learn during a given lesson or unit, they are better able to determine how well they are doing and what they need to improve’ (Marzano, 2017).

This two hour workshop will focus on how teachers support learners to understand the intention, goals and indicators of learning. Participants will develop their understanding of the achievement standards of the Australian Curriculum to design goals that will progress and stretch learning for all students.

This workshop will prepare teachers to set explicit, challenging and achievable learning goals for all learners and is suitable for teachers at all career stages, particularly those in their second to fourth year of teaching.
