About this Event

Area of interest: EDUCATION

The Mini-COGE Advanced course offers Mini-COGE graduates the opportunity to upgrade their skillsets and knowledge base to better face the challenges the diverse classroom presents. 

Mini-COGE Day 3 builds on the differentiation practices learned on Mini-COGE Day 2. In this session, teachers will learn how to compact the curriculum for students who have mastered outcomes, supporting their development further.  The session will also explore how to utilise the time saved by compacting the curriculum. Teachers will practice new curriculum models, write independent research projects and develop individual learning plans.

Skills/competencies/knowledge gained:

Teachers will:

• Expand their repertoire of teaching strategies to suit the intellectual development and characteristics of students• Plan learning and teaching programs using contemporary knowledge and understanding of curriculum• Support colleagues in selecting and applying effective teaching strategies• Develop and apply a comprehensive range of assessment strategies to diagnose learning needs

2. To come prepared with a case study student in mind that matches the unit of work in 1 (e.g a gifted year 7 science student and a year 7 science unit). This case study will be used in planning a learning task during the program.

2021 face to face events

This event is currently planned to be face to face with social distancing and Covid-safe measures in place. If we are unable to proceed with face to face delivery we will deliver the course online on the same dates and times.

We have been running our online course since April 2020 with great success and have been working hard to make sure this format has the same highly-researched content, delivered in a way that works best for online learning.
