November 2018

NOW is the time to plan for 2019

 

What are your professional learning goals for 2019?
And how will you achieve these goals?


Learning Network NZ provides professional learning that INSPIRES and we have organised a fantastic line up of both global and NZ educators ready to share their research, expertise and practice.

Starting in January with a focus on Wellbeing is Graham Watts (UK) and continuing throughout the year we will connect you with opportunities to hear global educators on creating a collaborative school culture, differentiated instructional leadership, problem based learning, neuroscience, future focused learning, thinking, nurturing learner agency through inquiry, growth mindsets and creating resilient schools.

Get in early for those events happening before school starts and during Term 1
You can book now, but pay in 2019
