Free Teachers' Professional Development: Our Big Blue Backyard - Student learning and the Bay
Date: Wednesday, 10 November
Time: 4pm to 5:30pm
As we enter the warmer months, join us for a deep dive into Melbourne's Big Blue Backyard! We will explore the importance of Port Phillip Bay's diverse ecosystems and the wonder this can inspire in our students. Come hear about the work being done by the EcoCentre to protect and promote the health of this unique underwater world, including citizen science initiatives, and how this can provide a range of authentic learning opportunities for students! In this session we will hear from a couple of local schools about how they've integrated this outdoor classroom into their student learning and engagement.
The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
