   POSTPONED to Term 1 2023

Writing an ORS application can be a lengthy process that requires significant commitment from the team involved. This may be made worse by murky guidelines, time constraints or the sheer breadth of data to be collected and synthesised. It is not something taken on lightly. 

We want to share expertise in this area and have designed workshops to make the journey more manageable and more successful. 

Workshop 1 POSTPONED

 - aims to demystify the process, explore some examples, refer to supporting resources and guiding documents, and develop a pathway to complete an application.

Workshop 2 POSTPONED

is a practical workshopping experience during which we will work through some applications together. Bring your data, bring your questions, and bring what you have so far.

'Cooperative Learning is a teaching arrangement that refers to small, heterogeneous groups of students working together to achieve a common goal (Kagan, 1994)'.

Come and join us for an informative and interactive session where we will take you through the growth of what is now called  Cooperative  Learning and the process of putting these strategies into practice in your own classroom/school. We will review new ways of structuring and using groupwork to encourage your students to work together an achieve as a team while being responsible for their own learning and that of those in their group.
