Event Details

What's it all about?

Looking for better engagement with your students? Or ways to support them to embed their learning and assessment pieces into their everyday practice?

Then join us to kick off 2018 with our first Connect Up Breakfast for the year, where we will share some creative approaches and resources that we use in our learning programs! 

Adults learn best when they assess their own learning needs, when they can connect and reflect with trusted others, as well as when they have opportunity to practice new skills.

We will share case studies and examples across two contexts within the Health and Community Services and Early Childhood sectors, using resources that can be purchased or created yourself to enhance your ways of working.

We will explore:

In this session, we will explore four effective ways adults learn:

  • Creative Conversations
  • Reflective practice
  • Opportunity to practice
  • Challenging experiences, and
  • Resources and approaches that support these ways of learning including Indigenous teaching and learning perspectives.

Who should attend?

This session is suitable for anyone who would like to build a learning community in their workplace. RTO providers working with students with English as a second language or low levels of literacy will find it particularly beneficial.

Who is facilitating?

Rona Scherer

Rona Scherer comes from the Kuku Yalanji and Mamu peoples of Far North Queensland, having a strong and active role in her homelands. She comes with diverse experiences from administration to curating art exhibitions and conducting workshops and conferences presentations.

Cultural inclusion and safety within Australia are on a very long journey. There is much work to be done within workforce and with organisations who are seeking to begin those conversations. Rona sees her current role as a Workforce Consultant as her way to support making that cultural shift towards a truly reconciled and progressive nation.

Christine Payne

Chris has been with the with the Workforce Council since 2007 where she has held various roles. Chris has worked with groups across various community sectors including youth, mental health, domestic violence and family support, working with them to gather data, prioritise needs and develop and implement workforce plans to build the capacity of the health and community services workforce.

More recently Chris’s work has focused on the development of resources to support learners with English as a second, or third language and the development and delivery of the ‘Develop Workforce in a Cultural Context’ program. Chris’s involvement in this work has developed her interest in using creative approaches to teaching & learning, particularly through embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.
