Thursdays: 25 October, 1 November, 15 November, 29 November and 6 December | 4.30–7.30pm

(For teachers outside the wider Sydney metropolitan region, attendance at the evening workshops is available by video-conference, subject to availability of facilities in your region.)

These workshops will examine in detail the theories, policies and practices that promote quality literacy and numeracy learning outcomes for students identified as experiencing difficulties learning in a mainstream classroom environment, across a range of Key Learning Areas. Specific focus will be placed on teachers working as part of teams to promote individualised programs and processes that assist students with additional learning needs to achieve collaboratively established learning outcomes. Workshop activities and individual learning tasks will promote the integration of theory and practice across a range of settings including early childhood, primary and secondary.

Workshops are held in the Sydney School of Education and Social Work, the University of Sydney.
