Event Details

What’s it all about?

The Learning Outcomes are probably the most used and familiar aspect of the Learning Frameworks, but how well do we really understand their full scope?  And how do they actually work in practice? 

There are many and varied ideas and myths about how these Outcomes are meant to be used.  Should we link them to learning stories?  Use them to plan our programs, or to assess childrens progress?  In this session we will explore, unpack and clarify the purpose and function of the Learning Outcomes, how they link to our practice, and ways to demonstrate their use in Assessment and Rating. 

We will refresh our understanding of just what these Outcomes mean, how they work together, and how to use them in decision making and planning.  We will also critically reflect on the nature of learning, what this means for children, and for us as educators.     


Learning Outcomes

  • identify and explore how learning is defined and positioned in the Learning Frameworks
  • consider the purpose and function of Learning Outcomes in the context of the NQF
  • identify key elements of the Learning Outcomes and what they mean in practice
  • explore how Learning Outcomes connect with curriculum decision making and the planning cycle
  • evaluate practice examples of assessment of learning and development
  • critically reflect on your philosophy of learning

Stephen's approach:


Stephen uses a range of approaches in delivering professional development depending upon the context and the needs of the group, though they are all characterised by a strength-based, supportive, relaxed and engaging tone. He strongly favours accessible, grounded approaches that empower, challenge and inspire. He is a big believer in using group conversational and story based approaches to build deep understanding and insight and that complex ideas don't have to be complicated. His aim is to support educators to make real connections between theoretical frameworks and day-to-day practice, and to enable them to reconnect with the meaning and vision at the core of their work.
