The future of teacher librarians and the role we play within learning in the school should be bright as the various needs of an ever-changing curriculum depend on our skill set.

 

However, is this the case in your school? Our role as a TL is more complex than before. In this session, 3 differentiators will be discussed for you to consider for your future.

  • The rise of different learning frameworks and processes.
  • How do we connect with students to enable their learning?
  • How do we become more resilient in the face of change?

At the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify a range of learning frameworks or processes that will suit their school needs.
  • Use scaffolds provided to develop these learning processes further.
  • Develop an understanding of a core toolkit of teaching strategies to enable access for student learning.

School Learning Space Designing for Everyday Designers
with Dr Hilary Hughes, Adjunct Associate Professor, Queensland University of Technology

 

[As we are in Daylight Saving Time in Australia, please check the time of the webinar for your time zone, e.g. NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS = 8.00 pm, QLD = 7.00 pm, SA = 7.30 pm, NT = 6.30 pm, WA = 5.00 pm]

 

Participatory designing enables school community members to have a say in the shaping of new or renovated learning spaces. A participatory process can inform the work of professional designers and architects in realising these collective wishes and needs.

 

This webinar is for ‘everyday designers’ with an interest in creating school spaces that support learning, teaching and student wellbeing. We will explore how school community members, including students, can collaborate in (re)imagining their physical school environment. The webinar will cover basic participatory designing concepts and practices, illustrated by real life school design experiences. No prior professional design knowledge or experience is required. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share learning space design ideas and experiences.

 

Outcomes for attendee:

  • Understand basic participatory designing concepts in a practical school context
  • Identify learning space design problems
  • Develop a simple participatory designing project with students and/or school community

Hilary is a passionate educator-researcher in school libraries, learning space design, information literacy and informed learning, and international student experience.
She is currently Adjunct Associate Professor at the Faculty of Education Faculty, Queensland University of Technology (QUT). From 2005 to 2018 Hilary proudly taught – and for several years coordinated – QUT’s Master of Education (Teacher-Librarianship). In this work she draws on previous experience as an information professional and information literacy educator. In 2013 she was privileged to be Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence at University of Colorado Denver.

In order to live a higher quality life, maintaining optimal wellness is key. Wellness is more than being free from illness; it is a process of change and growth towards a mentally and physically healthy lifestyle. Everything we feel and do relates to our well-being and directly affects our actions and emotions. Applying wellness in your everyday life will allow you to achieve your full potential and live with passion and purpose.

 

In this webinar, Jo explores stress in the workplace, mindfulness activities and classroom activities.

 

This webinar will focus on:

  • The importance of taking care of your own mental health
  • Practical tools to help reduce stress
  • Why laughter is so important

 

Jo is a mother of two, a wife, sister, friend and business owner. Like most women, Jo wears many hats and has learnt to juggle everyday life alongside a business. As a former defence force wife, Jo understands the stress on family life when your partner is away for extended periods of time. For 6 years, Jo worked casual as a Teacher Aide in a Special School and believes that everyone is ‘special’ in their own little way, it is just that some are more noticeable than others!  Jo’s goal is to empower both men and women to take control of their mental health.

Teaching Students to be Critical Online Learners [Replay]
Content presented by Fiona Sharman, Teacher Librarian, Roseville College

 

[As we are in Daylight Saving Time in Australia, please check the time of the webinar for your time zone, e.g. NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS = 8.00 pm, QLD = 7.00 pm, SA = 7.30 pm, NT = 6.30 pm, WA = 5.00 pm]

 

In a ‘post-truth’ world, it is more important than ever to equip students with the critical thinking skills they need to make reasoned judgments about online news and social media content. During this session, Fiona will share how her school library responded to its concern about the preparedness of students to use reasoning to reach informed conclusions about what they read or view online. This includes a focus on ‘Fake News’, the increasing sophistication of ‘native advertising’, the viral nature of Social Media news stories, and the corruptibility of online image and video content.

 

Inspired by a 2016 Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) study, Roseville College developed its own three-year action research project that emulated SHEG’s study and adapted year 7 Information Literacy lessons to build student capacity to be critical online learners. Fiona will discuss this action research journey, its findings and suggest digital tools and lesson ideas that can be adopted to build your students’ skills as critical online learners.

 

After attending, participants will:

  • Develop their understanding of how to effectively measure students’ critical thinking skills in regards to online news, advertising and social media content
  • Gain access to Roseville College’s full 3 year action reports, graphs and methodology
  • Be provided with examples of how to create meaningful lessons that encourage critical thinking and develop student online information skills
  • Discover some emerging technologies that are specifically designed to analyse various social media content for reliability, authenticity and source provenance

Fiona Sharman is an English/History/Sociology teacher who now works as a qualified Teacher-Librarian. She is passionate about teaching critical thinking skills and enjoys supporting all students to develop their ability to engage in higher order thinking in their learning. When not at school, Fiona loves visiting family in the country, horse riding, sailing and generally escaping from the city!
