                                         LEARNING PROGRAMME

This year’s programme offers professional development that supports
teaching and learning in primary schools. The programme is focused on:

  assisting teachers to inform their professional decision-making by
  accessing, analysing and using data to identify areas of need;
  challenging teachers’ existing beliefs, expectations and professional
  practices, and supporting them where necessary to make changes to
  their practices;
  supporting teachers to raise their level of subject knowledge,
  pedagogical        content   knowledge     and       their    knowledge      and
  understanding of the principles of assessment;
  establishing and supporting effective learning communities within and
  between schools; and
  supporting teachers new to New Zealand primary school teaching.


Course, workshop and cluster leaders had been selected from throughout
New Zealand to deliver quality professional development.




THE REVISED CURRICULUM:

In early November 2007 the Revised Curriculum was released. All
teachers should now have an individual copy and schools will be
beginning their implementation work. For many schools this will be
an ongoing process over a number of years. All CED advisers have
received training and support in the themes and direction of the
curriculum and are available to support teachers, syndicates and
schools with this work. School leaders are invited to speak with any
primary   adviser      about   support     available     to    schools   for   the
implementation of the Curriculum.
PROFESSIONAL LEARNING IN 2008:
The core business of the Centre for Educational Development (CED) at
Massey University is supporting the professional learning needs of
teachers, syndicates and schools in our region.


Over the many years the Centre for Educational Development has been
working with teachers and schools, we have developed our understanding
of effective professional learning. The ways of working with you in 2008
reflect these understandings.


There are four main ways that the Centre for Educational Development
can support teaching and learning in your school. They are:


► IN–DEPTH PROFESS IONAL DEVELOPMENT
  (IPD):

   In-depth Professional Development provides an opportunity for
   teachers to engage in a focused in-school professional development
   programme. IPDs are negotiated on request between advisers and
   teachers, either as individuals or groups of teachers. Research and
   past experience indicates that an IPD is most effective in bringing
   about change in teachers’ practice.


   Teachers who are interested in participating in an IPD can contact
   the appropriate learning area/management adviser or the Associate
   Director at the Centre for Educational Development to register
   interest.
► SPECIFICALLY CRAFTED                   PROFESSIONAL
  L E A R N I N G:

  Should you, your syndicate or your school have a specific
  professional learning need please do not hesitate to contact the
  CED to discuss how your needs might be met. Our team of advisers
  are keen to work with you and your staff to design and deliver
  professional development uniquely crafted to your particular
  requirements.




► COURSES:
  Courses have been developed to allow participants to interact with
  new knowledge, skills and/or teaching practices. The details provided
  for each course within this book allow teachers to make an informed
  selection that best addresses their professional learning needs. All
  participants in courses should expect to receive at least one follow-up
  visit from the Course Director (if they are Massey University advisers).




► WORKSHOPS AND CLUSTERS:
  Workshops and clusters provide opportunities for participants to
  share resources, experiences and ideas in a collegial environment.
         Courses, Clusters
                                           AND WORKSHOPS


COURSE/CLUSTER/WORKSHOP                           FEES:
Course, cluster and workshop fees are inclusive of GST.             This fee
contributes    payment     towards     venue   hire,   administration   costs,
course/workshop materials (including follow-up resources where offered)
and a light lunch or morning/afternoon tea. Where a course or workshop
requires secondment of a director, or specialist materials and facilities,
the fee is set to cover these costs.




REGISTRATION               PROCEDURES:
Schools are requested to send the Registration Forms (attached at the
back of this booklet) to the Inservice Course Administrator at the Centre
for Educational Development by:


           FRIDAY 15 FEBRUARY 2008
Registration for a course or workshop ensures automatic acceptance into
the course/workshop unless participant numbers are limited (as indicated
in the Course Description) or there are not enough participants to make
the course viable.


Prior to a course or workshop being conducted, individual teachers will
be contacted by the CED with confirmation of time, date, venue, and
information on what to bring.




              PLEASE DO NOT SEND MONEY WITH COURSE, CLUSTER
              AND WORKSHOP REGISTRATIONS. SCHOOLS WILL BE
                     INVOICED AT THE END OF EACH TERM.
