AISACT Celebrating Teaching and Learning

The AISACT Celebrating Teaching and Learning event was held at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra, on Thursday 10th November 2016. The event showcased 44 presentations highlighting some of the unique teaching and learning projects and programs that have occurred in AISACT Member Schools in 2016.

Over 100 attendees from all Member Schools heard about and discussed projects and programs introduced by schools covering areas such as technology, coaching, learning support, leadership and whole school approaches to teaching and learning.

Additionally, attendees heard from participants who took part in the AIM Emerging Leaders Program, the Literacy and Numeracy Coaching Academy, the 3D Printing Program and the Learning Frontiers Program. Students from Canberra Girls Grammar School and Canberra Grammar School also showcased some of the work that they had completed during the year.

This is an annual event in the Association’s calendar, and AISACT looks forward to showcasing the projects and programs schools will undertake throughout next year at the 2017 Celebrating Teaching and Learning event.

Thoughts from the day from attendees:

The variation of wonderful projects that were presented inspired schools to get involved in new initiatives.

 It was just so great to be in a professional learning environment with other people from the independent sector. A rare thing for me and I really enjoyed the opportunity.

 At the end of the school year, at report writing time etc 15 minute bites of information is just perfect. Long enough to hear great things that have to be presented in a succinct way and not so long that you lose focus.
