The second round of the 2019 ELSA Pilot educator workshops was held in Cairns in June. And what a lot of fun we all had!
This time around, the ELSA team decided to host one big workshop in a single location rather than various smaller workshops in different locations. All 2019 Pilot educators from across Australia – ACT, NSW, VIC, QLD, SA, WA, TAS and NT – attended the two-day workshop.
Feedback from educators was positive – many said that it was a great opportunity to meet educators from other parts of Australia and discuss the ELSA Pilot and early learning in general.
The focus of the Cairns workshops was ELSA apps 3 and 4, Representations and Investigations. When specific apps were being discussed, the cohort of 100+ educators split into two smaller groups – new educators and returning educators – to enable a more customised experience.
The Cairns workshop was such a success that we look forward to running more educator workshops like this in the future.
