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.

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

Module three addresses the value for students of opportunities to Talk to Learn and to engage in sustained and in-depth conversations about key curriculum concepts. 

This course is self-paced and equivalent to approximately 4 hours of PD. There are short assessments to be completed as part of the course.
