As part of its professional learning calendar for 2019 the MLTAWA is introducing ‘Pop-up PLs’ – informal meetings organised for members by members to share good practice, practical innovations, personal insights or simply to have a discussion about aspects of languages education with colleagues. The meetings typically last between 60-90 minutes and can be a presentation on a single topic, a number of shorter presentations on related topics or a group sharing opportunity. The meetings take place at the organiser’s school, after school between 3.45-6pm, and are free to attend. The MLTAWA will take care of promotion and registration.
The MLTAWA has arranged some presentations to start the ball rolling:
- Pop-up 1 – Small Group Moderation – Why is it necessary? (suitable for teachers of Years 11 and 12, HOLA and administrators). Monday, 11 March 4.00-5.30pm at Willetton SHS. For more information and registration visit https://mltawa-pop-up-1-2019.
