Teachers' Professional Development (TEN)

Free professional learning events each term for school and ELC educators, support staff and parents  to network, share resources and connect to the local environment. A wide range of topics are covered with a focus on embedding sustainability and environment education in classroom teaching.

Emphasis is on STEAM/STEM and inquiry-based learning with a variety of topics covered such as climate change and ecosystems, habitat improvements for local species and plastics in our oceans and on land.  Our workshops are open to all teachers who are motivated to bring the issue of sustainability to the fore in their schools. Schools who are enrolled in Resource Smart will find these workshops helpful in providing inspiration and direction.  

Our next TEN workshop is on Tuesday June 18th at the Port Phillip EcoCentre from 4-5.30pm
Topic: All about Energy: exploring a STEM approach to simple classroom activities and an investigation of installing solar for schools. Our guest presenter Nicholas Rickard from Positive Charge, will provide valuable information on how to go about installing solar in schools. Register here.
