Christchurch event: Embedding Teaching as Inquiry in your school
4:00pm, 13 March, 2019 / Te Moana/Copper Top room, between Rehua and C-block lecture theatres, University of Canterbury
This seminar will give teachers and school leaders the opportunity to learn about the importance of teaching as inquiry as well as providing practical strategies and ideas to support an understanding of how teaching as inquiry can be effectively implemented in schools. Professor Graeme Aitken and Associate Professor Claire Sinemma, from The University of Auckland, developed the Teaching as Inquiry model in the New Zealand Curriculum and have a wealth of knowledge and experience working with schools on developing inquiry practices. They will be joined by Alison Taylor, Deputy Principal at Pakuranga College, who will discuss her school’s journey to embed teaching as inquiry into the practice and mindset of their teachers. Alison’s presentation will also offer practical steps and resources that other schools can use in their own teaching as inquiry journeys.
