Upcoming Professional Learning Opportunities

Once again we are in lockdown and working from home. We hope everyone stays safe, and that this is a short restriction that hasn't spoiled your break time too much!

Preparing for 202160 is in full swing, as well as finalising your first session subjects. The QUASAR workshops last week gave information about reflecting on your subject and noting any areas that need development.

This week the Grades Hold comes into effect if students have not completed their academic integrity subject. While we now have 80% complete, the remaining 20% means nearly 8000 students in real numbers. Further reminders will go out to students by the end of the week - and we will be following up with cohorts whose completions are low.

CSEdX2021 submissions will be open from next week as well - we are excited to provide the opportunity to share your practice and hear what others do. More news on this soon.

In the next 2 weeks we are making a change to how we communicate about professional learning opportunities. We will provide you with a new link, and you will b able to directly link professional learning events to your outlook calendar - as well as read a range of resources, view professional learning videos and learn of events and opportunities offered both internally and externally. The newsletter next week will have the link and all the information.
