THIS EVENT IS FULL. Presented by Dr Jennifer Hammond and Maya Cranitch.  Supporting EAL/D students in our classrooms is a three part course designed to address the contributions and educational needs of diverse EAL/D students in Australian schools, including those who have recently arrived and who may be from refugee backgrounds. Drawing upon principles and practices of EAL/D pedagogy to support mainstream and EAL/D teachers in planning and implementing programs that meet the needs of EAL/D students in mainstream classes, teachers will learn how to identify specific teaching and learning practices that can best support the educational development of their EAL/D students.
This course is self-paced and equivalent to approximately 4 hours of PD. There are short assessments to complete within the course. 

Participation in these courses can be ‘one off’ or undertaken as a series of three separate sessions. We recommend all three be done in sequence. 

This first module addresses program planning processes that are principled and collaborative; and that identify clear purposes for learning. It is organised in two sections: 

  • Section 1 — Program Planning
  • Section 2 — Purposes for Learning

Who should participate?

  • Teachers of students in years F–6
  • Teachers of EAL/D students, including new arrivals 

Cost of participation: 

Member $135
Student member $98 
Non-member $195
Completing Supporting EAL/D students in our classrooms Part 1: Program planning to support EAL/D students will contribute 4 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Accredited PD in the priority area of Delivery and assessment of NSW Curriculum/Early Years Learning Framework addressing standard descriptors 1.3.2, 1.5.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
