Professional Learning

The Professional Learning program is central to PrimaryConnections and is designed to build teacher confidence and competence for teaching science and literacy.

The workshops give teachers the tools to understand the PrimaryConnections 5Es teaching and learning approach, its philosophy, and goals. Teachers develop their science pedagogical knowledge and explore how to effectively use, adapt, and extend the curriculum units to suit their students’ needs. 

Please see below for the Semester 2, 2018 calendar. 

The Primary Connections - Linking Science with Literacy project is supported by the Australian Government Department of Education through the Maths and Science Participation Program. 


Focus on STEM: Teaching Design Technology through Science Inquiry

**This event is a collaboration between Catholic Education Office Melbourne and PrimaryConnections. Please register only if you have received an invitation from Catholic Education Office Melbourne.

Designed to build efficacy with teaching science inquiry with a STEM perspective, this workshop visits the key principles underpinning the PrimaryConnections teaching and learning approach. Participants engage in first-hand experiences that exemplify best practice in supporting students to develop science understanding and skills that build capability in STEM, and walk away with a re-imagined perspective and a toolkit of practical strategies to implement directly into classroom practice.
