Teaching and Learning

Professional Development


VSSEC delivers STEM-based teacher professional learning leading to the establishment of a community of practice in a virtual learning space.

Offered from Term One to Three, the programs use the DESI model (Designing Effective Science Instruction, Anne Tweed). Two cohorts of 25-30 teachers, running in parallel (one for Primary and one for Secondary), will

  • participate in an initial 3-day face-to-face session, including an introduction to the CISCO equipment to ensure familiarity with the technology and an opportunity to optimize collegiality
  • participate in bi-weekly online sessions, (synchronous, and recorded for absentees) using Webex teams
  • complete inter-session tasks in teams of 2-3, facilitated by a VSSEC staff member, either virtually or in person.

Outputs will be gathered and archived for reference.
