Event description



The new 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


Attendees must have completed the standard Mini-COGE Day 1 & 2

Materials to bring:

Attendees should prepare the following for the Day 3 program:

1. A unit of work for differentiation - this can either be regular support or tiered learning.

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.
