Get further equipped for teaching

Around the symposium, a number of professional learning workshops will be run to further equip Sydney educators with the tools to redesign their curriculum, delivery, student support and engagement, and assessment approaches. They will be delivered by Educational Innovation with assistance from experienced teachers from across the institution.

Sydney educators can also book a 30 minute online consultation with an educational designer at any time.
