Event description
We will explore the use of cooperative learning to support friendships, social skills and learning.

About this Event

In this workshop we will explore inclusive strategies that can be incorporated into the classroom to support all students, particularly those with disability. These inclusive strategies promote equity and support all students to achieve social and academic goals.

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to:

  • The foundation for inclusive practice where participants will explore the understanding of disability and whether this is viewed as an outcome of social processes or the result of physical and/or medical differences.
  • Explicit instruction to teach social skills.
  • Ways to strengthen friendships between students.
  • Group work, in the form of cooperative learning, to facilitate inclusion. This approach is an evidence-based, highly structured, constructivist approach to learning that involves students working as a group to achieve a common educational or social goal that the students find meaningful.
  • Six cooperative learning strategies that work for all year levels. This framework is content free and can be used to design an infinite number of activities while improving student learning by strengthening classroom practice.
  • Creating equal participation and positive interdependence so that everyone joins in and the contribution of all is necessary for success.

Intended Audience:

Teachers/ educators in all year levels from reception to Year 12

Presenter:

Dr Leanne Longfellow is the director of Inclusive Education Planning. She is a former classroom teacher and special educator. She has taught in a variety of education settings over a thirty year period and is passionate about inclusive education and social justice.

Participants will receive:

  • A certificate of attendance referenced to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
  • Electronic handouts of the powerpoint.
  • Hard copies of the notes and templates provided at the workshop.
  • Afternoon tea
