Professional Learning at UAHS
Implementation, Innovation, Workshops & Conversation.
Implementation: Flipped Learning
Flipped learning describes a reversal of traditional teaching, where students gain first exposure to new material in their own time, usually via reading or lecture videos, and then class time is used to do the harder work of assimilating that knowledge through a range of higher order thinking tasks. Sign up for this implementation trial and you will be among the first to use our brand new flipped learning recording studio.
Innovation: eLearning Pioneers
Spend time enjoying the amazing facilities we have at UAHS and then create learning activities that take place outside of the classroom, whichever subject you teach. You write the relief lesson, I'll take your class, while you get creative on site. We'll meet later to debrief your ideas and plan to take them forward.

Professional Learning Faculty Workshops
Designing Learning for Gen Z
Gen Z is the most technologically saturated generation our world has ever seen. They are digitally transformed - seamlessly integrating technology into their everyday realities. They are globally focussed through the emergence of global pop culture, global brands, and a borderless virtual reality.
What does that mean for education? Hint: it's not about the technology.
Flip, Flop, Flap - Engaging Learners with the Flipped Classroom Model
Give students the content to learn at home. Let them read something you've written, or listen to a recording you've made, or watch a video you've created. Or, if you haven't yet got to the stage of creating your own content-based materials. Use the textbook, ask students to watch something on YouTube, or listen to a podcast. In this workshop, we'll investigate the different options available for providing students with the content - and checking for understanding.
Of course, the real art of flipping learning is in creating the higher order thinking tasks for students to engage with in class. But we can talk about that in another workshop (see below).
