Teachers' Professional Development (TEN)

Free professional learning events each term for school and ELC educators, support staff and parents  to network, share resources and connect to the local environment. A wide range of topics are covered with a focus on embedding sustainability and environment education in classroom teaching.

Emphasis is on STEAM/STEM and inquiry-based learning with a variety of topics covered such as climate change and ecosystems, habitat improvements for local species and plastics in our oceans and on land.  Our workshops are open to all teachers who are motivated to bring the issue of sustainability to the fore in their schools. Schools who are enrolled in Resource Smart will find these workshops helpful in providing inspiration and direction.  

Our last 2020 TEN Workshop:

Creating Habitat for Urban Wildlife in our Schools and our own Backyards!
Date - October 22nd 2020
Time - 4 - 5:30pm
Location - Online
Urban wildlife who depend on hollows, in old growth trees, are struggling to find safe nesting places for their survival and need our assistance, using alternative options such as nestboxes, bat tubes and more, to ensure they survive and thrive in our urban areas. Educators from the EcoCentre, Malcolm Dow and Sharron Hunter seek to inspire educators, sharing their knowledge of a few common species and their nesting needs, that could enhance habitat in backyards and schools all over Melbourne!  In addition, schools who are currently progressing in Resource Smart, and want to improve their biodiversity scores, would benefit from this workshop.
