WEBINAR RECORDINGS: 2021 Program

In 2021 we developed the live webinar series to offer webinars spread over the 4 school terms.
Responding to teachers feedback, we developed sessions, presented by highly experienced teachers, on the topics below.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Each session is divided into 2 parts.

Part 1 provides you with a recording of the webinar to view

Part 2 provides teachers the opportunity to apply their knowledge into their classroom and to share their ideas and learning with other teachers in the PAVE Academy Network through writing a Blog article for the PAVE Academy website.
