BETTER TOGETHER: Co-Teaching and Collaboration in Inclusive Schools
The practice of co-teaching continues to gain momentum and is being newly embraced by educators and schools across Australia (and the world!) every day.
Done well, the benefits of co-teaching practices are far reaching: greater flexibility, increased differentiation, improved teacher and learner wellbeing, and continuous professional learning opportunities to name just a few.
If you’re looking to start (or strengthen) your co-teaching practice, this is the PD for you. In this webinar series, the Illume Learning team are thrilled to be joined by the queen of co-teaching and collaboration - the amazing Dr Paula Kluth!
Your registration includes:
4.5 hours of live and on demand online professional development sessions(3 x 90 minute sessions)
Certificate of Attendance
Session One: Together as a Team presented by Dr Paula Kluth
LIVE 7:30pm AEST Monday 1st November & replay on-demand 2nd - 30th November
Participants will become familiar with the critical elements of an effective teaching team. This session is intended to prompt discussion and encourage participants to talk and think about teaching beliefs, roles, and collaborative behaviors. The “why” of co-teaching will be shared as well as relevant research. In addition, teams will learn the benefits of building a relationship with their teaching partners, work through the “Likes, Gripes & Quirks” tool, and consider how to educate stakeholders (e.g., parents, students) about their partnerships.
Session Two: Co-Teaching Structures & Beyond presented by Dr Paula Kluth
LIVE 7:30pm AEST Monday 8th November & replay on-demand 9th - 30th November
In session two, participants will learn about a variety of co-teaching structures (e.g., duet teaching, one teach/one make multisensory, parallel teaching) and explore dozens of ways educators can work together in shared classrooms. A few ideas for using co-teaching “beyond the structures” will also be shared including suggestions for collaborating during literature circles, project-based instruction and independent work time.
Session Three: Making it Happen presented by Amanda Corby & Rachel Carr
LIVE 7:30pm AEST Monday 15th November & replay on-demand 16th - 30th November
This session will look closely at what co-teaching and collaboration can really look like within your school and/or classroom. We will examine how to build effective working relationships between teachers, teaching assistants, specialist teachers, and other members of your school team. Practical tips and strategies will be provided with the aim of strengthening inclusive practices and improving student learning experiences. Case studies and first-hand experiences from within the Australian educational context will be featured.
