Professional Learning with the University of Newcastle

Last week we had the privilege of working with academics from the University of Newcastle. The University of Newcastle is continuing their work with the College which commenced at the beginning of the year.They are working with three College groups.

  1. The executive on peer coaching team to assist them develop skills to support their interaction with staff and to clarify their educational and learning goals. A practical campus-based project has been undertaken to promote the skills learned.
  2. The Zenith Team to develop an Inquiry-Based Learning project. This project will be put in place before the end of the term
  3. The Principal’s Leadership Team to refine our vision of the future directions of the College and to decide on our area of focus for 2019.
