Develop your knowledge of exemplary teaching practice and build collaborative expertise through professional networks.

These workshops are structured to help you design learning using the Victorian Curriculum Frameworks combined with: learning partnerships, learning environments, pedagogical practices and leveraging digital to activate deep learning in schools.

Through a Communities of Practice approach, you will have opportunities to:

  • develop a shared understanding of what deep learning is, how it looks in the classroom and how it can improve student outcomes
  • learn to design learning experiences and assessment tasks that move your students from surface to deep learning
  • foster relationships and networks outside of your school
  • reflect on your own practice.

This is part of our learning specialist suite designed to support newly appointed learning specialists to excel in their role.


Designed for learning specialists. 

Over 5 months, you are expected to engage in and contribute to:

  • 2 workshop days
  • 2 virtual meetings
  • 1 school visit (optional)
